FINAL REDSFEST ITEMS
I’m still trying to catch up with Redsfest-related items. I think this post will wrap it up…
During Redsfest, the club announced their 2011 award winners, including Minor League Pitcher of the Year Josh Smith, Minor League Hitter of the Year Denis Phipps, Minor League Player of the Year Billy Hamilton (Chief Bender Award), Reds Most Outstanding Pitcher Johnny Cueto (Johnny Vander Meer Award), Joe Nuxhall Good Guy Award winner Bronson Arroyo and Reds Most Valuable Player Joey Votto (Ernie Lombardi Award).
Drew Hayes won the Minor League Community Service Award.
Record Attendance For Redsfest
CINCINNATI (December 3, 2011) — A record 23,737 fans attended this weekend’s FOX Sports Ohio Redsfest at Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.
Friday’s crowd of 11,020 was a single-day record.
More than 70 former and current Reds players and coaches participated in this weekend’s events.
Proceeds from Redsfest, to be announced later this week, will benefit the baseball-themed outreach programs of the non-profit Reds Community Fund.
Finally, I received this email from loyal BOR reader Anthony Herr…
