The Bowling Green Hot Rods (Low A; Midwest League) are approaching a significant milestone, as they will celebrate their 2 millionth fan on Saturday, June 23. The Hot Rods host the Lake County Captains at Bowling Green Ballpark that evening, with first pitch set for 6:35pm.
“The Hot Rods are tremendously excited to celebrate our fans,” said Hot Rods GM/COO Eric C. Leach. “The impact that our fans have helped us make in southcentral Kentucky is something of which we can all be proud.”
The evening’s festivities are presented by ISTT, and will feature a team card set giveaway, a money machine with $1,000 in cash, and a guest appearance by the Zooperstars, who were featured on America’s Got Talent.
All fans in attendance will be able to participate in the money machine, and they will have 10 seconds to grab as much cash as they can.
In addition, the Hot Rods will have a special card in one of the team card sets designating one fan as the 2 millionth fan in franchise history. That lucky fan will win a Hot Rods prize pack, which includes two season tickets to the rest of the season, a custom Louisville Slugger bat designating them as the 2 millionth fan, a team jersey, autographed baseballs from the 2009 and 2018 teams, $100 to the team store, and a Hot Rods swag pack.
“It’s incredible that in nine and a half seasons, over 2 million people have come out to Bowling Green Ballpark,” Leach added. “The impact that the ballpark has had proves that the Hot Rods are a force in our community and have been true partners in the growth of downtown Bowling Green.”
