TODAY’S #REDS RUNDOWN
From my pal @Bongreatness…
The first 20,000 fans in Great American Ball Park today will receive a Jay Bruce patriotic t-shirt, courtesy of Reds Cherry Ice. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 2:10PM for Season Ticket Holders and 2:40PM for the general public. However, those times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code if the crowd size outside the gates dictates it so.
Due to Thursday’s rainout, we will be using the American flag being sent to New York City for pregame ceremonies for the 2013 Major League Baseball All Star Game during today’s game. The flag will be flown by the honor guard from Mountain State EMS.
One of today’s ceremonial first pitches will be offered up by Rock N’ Roll Hall of Famer Alice Cooper. Cooper is in town to perform at The Horseshoe Casino tomorrow evening at 8PM.
