2022 Commemorative Poster
The 2022 California Rodeo Salinas Commemorative Poster features Freestyle Bullfighter Ross Hill who was a fan-favorite known as the ‘Alabama Slamma.’ Hill competed in the freestyle bullfights in Salinas for many years, winning the championship in 2007, 2008 and 2018. Over the years he made numerous friends and fans across the Salinas Valley who were saddened to hear the news that 38-year-old Hill had passed away in an accident in March of 2021. The colorful poster was created from a photograph taken by Phil Doyle and designed by Tracy Hopper of Hopperopolis, a local graphic designer the Rodeo has worked with for over 13 years.
The California Rodeo Salinas made a $1000 donation to Ross’ foundation to help his family honor his legacy and thank them for allowing us to highlight Ross on our 2022 poster. The foundation carries out Hill’s wishes of helping children reach their full potential. More information can be found at RossHillBullfighter.com.
