I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if there's any new information out there about new minor league team in BG..like if they know who they are affiliated with or if there is any website or any way to contact them because I am graduating from Uninversity of Louisville this year with my degree in Sports Management and just wanted to inquire about a possible job. Thank you

The Rays always have a great farm system. The #1 overall pick in the 2008 draft, Tim Beckham, will probably begin 2009 in Bowling Green.

You can find job openings listed at this website.

Hiring is done through the South Atlantic League offices. There were 5 or 6 Bowling Green jobs listed a few months ago, but they are no longer listed and I know they have hired quite a few people already.

From everything I've heard you roughly are a jack of all trades with these positions. You might be the marketing manager, plus you sell popcorn, sweep the floors, and wear the mascot costume (which better not be the Cave Shrimp!). All this while you work an 8 hour day and then stay until well after the last out on home nights.

The Bowling Green team will be holding a special press conference/ceremony at 6pm (central) on Monday, Oct 27th to officially announce the team name, logo, colors, etc. There will be refreshments and the opportunity to purchase the first team gear. Jharb74.....get ready to stock up on Cave Shrimp stuff! :p:

I have been working in Minor League Baseball for 5 years down in Daytona Beach with the Daytona Cubs. As mentioned we sell advertising, flip hamburgers, clean the stadium, and work ridiculous long hours for low pay...but man do i love my job!

I went to a Bowling Green Hot Rods game last night. They played the Rome Braves and lost 11-2. Their ballpark is wonderful and the wife and I had a great time. I took a few pictures of Tim Beckham and the field as well and I'll post them sometime soon.

I'll be going back as soon as time allows. The attendance was 5209 which is amazing to me. There were over 3500 there on Friday too.

Yeah, I am hoping to head down sometime in the next few weeks for a game. I can't wait.

I don't know where you are, but I can say that if you are in Cincinnati or close that I wouldn't drive all that way to go. It was fun and it's only 30 minutes from my house, but it's not worth driving 3 hours or so.

If you do decide to go anyway, let me know.

I am in Cincinnati, but I am hoping to see Tim Beckham play and try to get an interview set up for another site I write for.

My brother goes to a bunch of these games and also works at a restaurant there in town they always eat at. I'm sure getting some time with Beck wouldn't be too hard.

I will bring someone along, make a nice day road trip out of it and get some work done while doing it. That is one benefit of this part of what I do.

I took a few pictures of Tim Beckham...

Beckham was the overall #1 pick from last year, his bat is decent, but his glove is shaky at best. I've been to about 6 or so games this year, and he's probably had an error in each game I've watched. Including 2 in some.

Still a good little trip if you can make it. Give the stadium about another month and it will be 100% complete. Give it another year or two and the whole area around it will be developed nicely.

Errors at the age of 19 don't concern me much. I would be much more interested in hearing how his hands look and how his range looks.

Do most games sell out? Should I buy the $10 seats or the $5 lawn area (taking a 6 year old). Thanks for any advice.

Also, how are the concession prices? Is there ample parking?

Thus far there has been only one sell out (opening day). As far as tickets go, I would go with the $10 reserved seats, the lawn seems to be mostly just kids running and playing.

The concession prices are very reasonable, the most expensive food item being $5 (chicken tenders with fries and nachos), the drink prices range from $1-$3 for a coke to $5 for a beer.

The parking situation is not too bad at night time, there are several pay lots ranging from $3-$5 or there is plenty of places where you can park along the curb on various downtown streets for free. The games are a great time, tonight is going to mark my 6th game of the year.

Yeah, you shouldn't have a problem getting tickets. Some of the "Thirsty Thursdays," ($2 beer night) are bigger crowds, but never sold out. Although with the local college being out, it may not be as crowded.

Only one of the 2 lawn areas is finished. The one down the right field line is open, but they just got the sod down in the center field lawn, and I don't think is open yet. I've heard of people buying the $5 lawn, then sitting wherever they want in the seats, which are a whopping $10.
