THE DAY AFTER
I’m about to run some errands that have piled up while I was in Arizona for a month, so I don’t have much for ya today…
I’ll be a guest this afternoon on SportsTalk 950 AM (Indianapolis) at 4:10pm EST with host Derek Schultz. Tune in/log on to hear me stammer and stutter about the Reds and the blog.
As for tomorrow’s rematch with the Cardinals…check this out:
The Cincinnati Reds announce a new special celebration for the first night game of the season, called Opening Night, when the Reds take on the Cardinals on Wednesday, April 7.
From a meet and greet with Reds players and live music in the Fan Zone to a flyover and full team introductions during pregame ceremonies to a spectacular post-game fireworks show, Opening Night will have all the glitz and glamour of the traditional home opener combined with the thrill of baseball under the lights.
Don’t miss the birth of a new can’t-miss date on the Cincinnati calendar!
