It was a circus today at Great American Ball Park
On Friday morning at Great American Ball Park, Asia the elephant from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey made an appearance on Crosley Terrace.
Enjoying the elephant were about 50 elementary school children from the Most Valuable Kids organization. They got to cheer Asia on as she showed her batting talent to Mr. Red (she can hold a bat in her trunk) and kick an over-sized ball to Mr. Red.
In addition to seeing Asia bat, the children received an animal care lesson by one of the circus’ animal caregivers, participated in a CircusFit® exercise activity with Ringling clowns and received free tickets to the show this weekend at U.S. Bank Arena.
Reds animal photographer Michael Anderson captured the event.
