From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight’s game is being broadcast on FOX national television as the Game of the Week.
The first 10,000 fans in attendance at tonight’s game will receive a free Reds seat cushion, courtesy of Charmin. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 5:15PM for Season Ticket Holders and 5:45PM for the general public. However, those gate opening times will be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code if the crowd size outside the gates dictates it so.
At 4:15PM today on Crosley Terrace we will host a Hooters World Wing Eating Championship Qualifier. The top 3 finishers in today’s contest will receive a trip to the Hooters World Wing Eating Championships to be held in Clearwater, Florida, on July 25th. The contest is an official Major League Eating sanctioned event.
Tonight is also the Reds first Social Media Night, presented by Cincinnati.com. Five hundred social media enthusiasts will join us at tonight’s game.
During pregame ceremonies tonight we will welcome horses from the Kentucky Horse Park to the ballpark. Thirteen horses will participate in a pregame parade around the warning track and several horses will also be on display in the Fan Zone prior to the game until the end of the 4th inning. Located in Lexington, Kentucky, the Kentucky Horse Park is widely renowned as the epicenter of equestrian life, sports & business.
