Sycuan Casino Resort announced that the organization has signed a one-year endorsement deal with San Diego Padres Pitcher Joe Musgrove.

As a part of this new agreement, Musgrove will be featured in upcoming marketing campaigns, promotions, social media content and make exclusive casino appearances.

“We are thrilled to have the support of starting pitcher Joe Musgrove as our first MLB ambassador. We knew he was the perfect fit for our brand because much like Sycuan, Joe has very strong ties to the local San Diego community. Joe grew up playing baseball not too far from the Sycuan Reservation and is now back in his hometown making Padres history. We are honored to have Joe as part of the Sycuan family and look forward to being able to offer our guests exclusive experiences through this new partnership,” Rob Cinelli, general manager at Sycuan Casino Resort, said.

In his first year with the Padres, Musgrove set career highs in a variety of categories including 181.1 innings pitched, 203 strikeouts and 3.18 ERA. He also threw a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field, the first no-hitter in Padres history. Musgrove, a San Diego native, was a class of 2011 graduate from Grossmont High School in El Cajon.

“I am very excited for my new partnership with Sycuan Casino Resort. Not only has Sycuan been a longtime supporter of the San Diego Padres, but they truly embody Padres baseball at their resort with their exclusive Padres Club Sycuan Card and an official Padres Hotel Suite not offered anywhere else. Being from San Diego myself, it’s really cool to be able to represent such a well-known local brand that is all about entertainment, fun and giving back to our community,” Musgrove said.
