From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the final Cincinnati.com Reds TweetUp of the 2012 season. The TweetUp crew will be seated in Section 110 of the ballpark during tonight’s game.
During pregame ceremonies we will recognize Reds infielder Todd Frazier as the team’s recipient of the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award. As the team recipient Todd will represent the Reds in the national voting amongst all 30 MLB teams. An overall league winner will be announced during the World Series.
