Brown Returns to BG to Face Hometown Team

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A Bowling Green native has been making headlines at BG Ballpark this past week.

Greensboro Grasshoppers’ outfielder Luke Brown is playing at the High-A level in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.

This is the first time the former Purple/Hilltopper is playing against his hometown team.

For Brown, this week has been something out of a fantasy come to life.

“Really it’s a dream come true,” Brown said. “Growing up coming to this field and sitting on this grass, trying to get all the foul balls and bats from players, it’s really cool to be on the other side of it.”

Brown will play tonight and tomorrow against the Hot Rods
