    Baseball is often referred to as America's pastime, but it's one that didn't come to Vette City until 2009. Ten years ago, a #BiGTime change came to Bowling Green. "It kind of legitimizes a community when you have a professional sports team," said Hot Rods General Manager Eric C. Leach. "It gives us this, really, sense of identity." The city's first ever professional baseball team--the Hot Rods--took the community out to the old ball game.
