Red Sox insurer Cross Insurance lands affiliate Portland Sea Dogs

The Bangor-based Cross Insurance will provide insurance for the Portland Sea Dogs, the Double-A affiliate baseball team of the Boston Red Sox.

Jonathan Cross, the insurer’s executive vice president, said in a press release the company is looking to expand the roster of sports organizations it represents. Before the Sea Dogs deal, that list already included the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, the New England Revolution, Gillette Stadium, the Boston Bruins and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

The company said that the deal will also provide it advertising space at the Sea Dog’s Hadlock Field, in Portland.

The insurer has been growing steadily this year, acquiring four other insurance agencies in New England by early April, according to Mainebiz.
