BETHPAGE, N.Y. – Bethpage FCU has agreed to pay Suffolk County $2.1 million to name the minor league baseball team Long Island Ducks' home field Bethpage Ballpark until 2020.

The contract would be the third name since the 10-year-old, 6,000-seat facility opened. It was called Citibank Park at its inception and Suffolk County Sports Park during the 2010 Ducks season when the county failed to sell the naming rights.

The legislature's Public Works Committee discharged a bill containing the naming-rights deal to the full legislature, which was scheduled to vote on it last night.
