Cubs, Palmer partnership reaches major proportions

On May 23, Tom and Laura Ricketts, who along with other family members are the owners of the Major League Chicago Cubs, were in Daytona Beach. After touring Jackie Robinson Ballpark, the Ricketts met with several of the Cubs partners, including Dean of Clinics Al Luce, D.C., (center).

Looking up at the giant Palmer sign adorning the front of the press box at Jackie Robinson Ballpark, the home of the Daytona Cubs, long-time Cubs fan Joe Rowe commented that he “knew about Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, but I didn’t know they had a clinic available to the public.”

“Whenever I hear that, it reinforces the benefits of the great partnership we enjoy,” said Ted Nikolla, communications specialist for the Florida Campus. “The Daytona Cubs and Jackie Robinson Ballpark are gems for our community. People of all ages and backgrounds come to the park. Utilizing the venue to promote our clinic makes so much sense.”

The partnership that has developed between the Daytona Cubs and Palmer’s Florida Campus has grown each year over the past five years. “Working with Ted and all the Palmer staff and students that come through our gates has only served to strengthen our organization,” said Brady Ballard, Daytona Cubs general manager. “We certainly hope that our partnership with Palmer has helped them in the same way.”

Every Sunday home game is “Palmer Family Fun Day.” Clinicians and interns are there to help raise awareness of chiropractic and the availability of the Palmer clinics. The clinics also offer chiropractic care to Daytona Cubs players and staff.
