The Bowling Green Hot Rods (A) have announced that group outings and multi-game ticket plans are now available for the 2009 season. In addition to these new offerings, fans can still purchase the team’s “Winner’s Circle” membership, a season ticket plan which includes special and exclusive benefits for the next five seasons.
“We’re proud to share these great new ways that fans can be a part of the Hot Rods’ inaugural season,” said Hot Rods General Manager and CEO Brad Taylor. “Some fans can will attend a few games and some will attend every game. These new packages will give fans the power to choose the best option for their family or organization.”
Businesses, schools, churches, and other groups can enjoy a Hot Rods game together in a variety of ways. The new ballpark will feature a left field picnic area for groups ranging from 25 to 200 and a suite-level party deck for groups of 25 to 100. For a fixed per person price, each of these special areas includes admission to the game and a 90-minute catered buffet. For groups that want to catch the game but don’t want a catered affair, the Hot Rods also offer a special Box Seat rate for groups of 25 or more.
The new ticket plans include:
2009 Full-Season Tickets ($650)
Fans can enjoy the same great seats to all 70 Hot Rods home games. This package includes special benefits like priority seat selection, select “Ticket Amnesty” dates to exchange unused tickets, and admission into the ballpark 30 minutes prior to the general public on most game days.
Half-Season Tickets ($325)
For fans that can’t make all the games, Half-Season Tickets offer the same great seats to 35 Hot Rods home games throughout the season. Two different Half-Season plans are available; one includes Opening Night (April 17) and the other features Independence Day Fireworks (July 4).
10-Game “Top Ten” Pack ($100)
The “Top Ten” Pack is the only way, other than Full-Season or Half-Season Tickets, to guarantee a ticket to the Hot Rods Home Opener on April 17. This package includes an average of two games per month with each game taking place between Thursday and Sunday. Each game will also feature a matchup against a different South Atlantic League opponent.
5-Game “Super Saturday” Pack ($50)
With this 5-game plan, fans can see one game per month and enjoy some of the season’s top promotions. It features five different South Atlantic League opponents, including games against Charleston (Yankees) and Greenville (Red Sox). This package also includes a matchup against the Hot Rods’ Bluegrass rivals, the Lexington Legends.
5-Game “Kids Day” Pack ($50)
With this mini-plan, fans can see one game per month and enjoy some of the season’s top youth-themed promotions. It features five different South Atlantic League opponents, including games against Charleston (Yankees) and Greenville (Red Sox). Every game takes place on a Sunday, so kids can run the bases after each game in the package, weather permitting.
Turbo Tix ($60)
The Turbo Tix package, ideally suited for gifts and employee incentives, includes six undated vouchers that can be exchanged for a seat to nearly every 2009 Hot Rods home game once individual game tickets are avalable for purchase. Turbo Tix offers you the flexibility to redeem the tickets in a combination of ways. For example, one fan could attend six different games or a family of six could attend one game together.
Pretty reasonable prices to see what I think will be the Rays most exciting affiliate in 2009. To order tickets go here.
The Hot Rods also announced their post-game fireworks shows for the 2009 season. Citizens First Bank will present Opening Night Fireworks following the Hot Rods’ April 17 game against the Kannapolis Intimidators. The next fireworks show will follow the team’s June 12 game against the Lexington Legends. The third show of the series will honor America with an Independence Day fireworks show after the July 4 game with Augusta.
