HEART AND HUSTLE UPDATE; HOME FIELD MAKEOVER

Congratulations to Jonny Gomes who finished the fan voting for the 2010 Heart and Hustle Award with 8,971 votes – the most for any of the 30 finalists.  Unfortunately, the fan voting compromised of just 5% of the final tally.  Current players and baseball alumni compromised of the remainder of the final percentage and Roy Halladay was named over the weekend as the recipient of the 2010 Heart and Hustle Award.

 2011 Reds Community Fund Home Field Makeover

CINCINNATI (November 8, 2010) — The Reds Community Fund is looking for one special field renovation project for 2011.

If your local youth baseball or softball home field could use some help, complete an application today for the “Home Field Makeover.”

Applications are available online at reds.com/community, and are being accepted now through December 15.

The winning field makeover project may include but is not limited to:
- Infield and outfield restoration
- Field grading and leveling
- New fencing and backstops
- New infield dirt
- Grass seeding

The project will also include support from Reds field vendors, a visit by members of the Reds grounds crew and other amenities.

The field must be located in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky or West Virginia.

The makeover recipient will be announced during the Reds Winter Caravan in January.

Since 2006, the Reds Community Fund has renovated over 300 fields across Reds Country.
