Ground was broken on June 4th 2008 for what would become, the new history of Bowling Green baseball and by April 17th 2009... the first pitch was read to be thrown here. That inaugural game would see the Bowling Green Hot Rods lineup brought onto the field in vintage "hot rod automobiles" before going on to defeat the Kannapolis Intimidators by a score of 8-4. This 4,559 seat stadium was built to the tune of $28 million dollars by the DLR Group.
