From my pal @Bongreatness...
Tonight’s game is the second Bark in the Park event of the 2012 season, presented by IAMS & Kroger. Over 500 dogs and their owners will take part in today’s event which includes activation in the Fan Zone and a pregame parade around the warning track. We’ll also have the “First Fetch” and a traditional ceremonial first pitch from the group today.
The Reds wish their neighbors, the Cincinnati Bengals, the best of luck during their Monday Night Football game tonight. And we will keep fans in the ballpark updated on the game throughout the evening.
