WKU Baseball, Bowling Green Hot Rods To Meet In Exhibition Game

WKU's baseball team will play an April 7 exhibition game against the minor league Bowling Green Hot Rods

The WKU Hilltoppers baseball team will face the minor league Bowling Green Hot Rods in an exhibition game next spring. 

The university’s athletic department and the Midwest League club made the joint announcement Wednesday morning.  The game will be played April 7th at Bowling Green Ballpark.

WKU Athletic Director Todd Stewart says, during his time in college athletics, he’s never been a part of an exhibition game against a professional team.

“I think this is truly unique,” said Stewart. “Because we’re both obviously based in Bowling Green. Fans will be familiar with the players of both teams and the timing of the game, as I said before, is really good. The question was asked ‘do we continue to do this in the future?’ I certainly hope so. I think this is just the beginning of something that people can mark on their calendars."
