Miss Ohio Elissa McCracken & Miss Pennsylvania Jordyn Colao will serve as today’s Honorary Captains. The duo are both competing for the title of Miss America, taking place in Las Vegas in January 2013.
One of our ceremonial first pitches today will be offered up by Jeff Albers, contest winner in the MLB/Majestic Athletic “Shirt of the Fan” contest. Jeff’s design is featured on a tee shirt now being offered in the Reds Team Shop (design pictured below).
