Hot Rods partner with Casey Jones Distillery

Casey Jones Distillery announced a sponsorship Wednesday with the Bowling Green Hot Rods. Under the terms of the agreement, Casey Jones Distillery will serve as the title sponsor of the Hot Rod’s nationally recognized “Bootlegger Nights” for the 2019 season.

The Hot Rods, Class A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays,  won the 2018 Midwest League. The partnership with Casey Jones Distillery follows a series of announcements for the team including major stadium renovations and a recent change of ownership.

Originating in 2016, the first “Bootlegger Night” featured a complete rebranding of the Hot Rods team as the Bowling Green Bootleggers for a single night. The concept was successful and earned the Hot Rods the MiLBY award for top promotion in the same season. For 2019, the Hot Rods will be rebranded as the Bootleggers every Thursday night with Casey Jones Distillery featured as the title sponsor.

The Hot Rods will be adding a branded mini bar made of used Casey Jones Distillery barrels in the main stadium entrance as well as point of sale access for attendees on the concourse and Reinhart Club. Guests will be able to purchase the small batch, craft moonshine produced by Casey Jones Distillery as well as the company’s several flavored Moonaritas the company has grown famous for.
