A year ago Tuesday, the Bowling Green Hot Rods officially came into existence during a ceremony at Citrus Square Park. The past year has seen the Hot Rods feature the number one overall pick in the 2008 draft, a Futures Game representative and Minor League Baseball’s promotion of the year. In fact, the Hot Rods promotion award came for “What Could’ve Been Night” featuring the Bowling Green Cave Fish, one of the mascots that lost out to Hot Rods a year ago. Bowling Green general manager and CEO Brad Taylor said this in a news release:
“What a difference a year makes. At this time in 2008, we had no name, no mascot, no stadium, temporary offices, and most importantly, no track record with our fans. Now, we’ve played a season, we loved the enthusiasm and support of the fans, and we’re already at work to make 2010 bigger and better for them.”
