Sycuan Casino Resort announced Thursday that it signed a one-year endorsement deal with San Diego Padres pitcher Joe Musgrove.

Musgrove, 29 and a San Diego native who graduated from Grossmont High School in El Cajon, the same city the casino is located, has been with the Padres since 2021 and before that played with the Houston Astros from 2016 to 2017 and the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2018 to 2020.

While this agreement is with a brick-and-mortar casino, California will vote this fall on online sports betting. If that goes through, sports betting apps in California may go live in 2023/24.

What’s In The Agreement

With this 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," Rob Cinelli, general manager at Sycuan Casino Resort, said in a news release. "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."

About Joe Musgrove

In his first season with the Padres, Musgrove posted some career highs in numerous statistical categories such as innings pitched (181.1), strikeouts (203), and ERA (3.18). 

Musgrove tossed a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field, and this was the first no-hitter in Padres history.

"I am very excited for my new partnership with Sycuan Casino Resort," Musgrove said in the release. "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."
