A SPECIAL #REDS LINEUP PRESENTATION: GAME III
From my pal Obi-Wan Bonkowski…
Tonight the first 20,000 fans in attendance will receive a STAR WARS™ tee shirt courtesy of Kahn’s. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 5:10PM for Season Tickets Holders and 5:40PM for the general public. However, those gate opening times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code if the crowd size outside the gates dictates it so.
Today is the first Reds Rookies/Reds Birthday Babies game of the 2014 season, presented in conjunction with TriHealth, Pampers & Kroger. The Fan Zone will open early for those attending that portion of tonight’s game (via the Mehring Way entrance, starting at 4:30PM) and we will have a pregame parade with babies and their parents.
Reds Hall of Famer Jack Billingham will serve as tonight’s Honorary Captain. Jack will be appearing in the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum today from 4:30-6:30PM to sign autographs.
Tonight’s final ceremonial first pitch will be offered up by 10-year old Lexington, Kentucky native Toby Foster, who will be in his Stormtrooper costume. Toby suffers from mitochondrial disease and receives weekly treatments at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to help treat his condition. Toby is a big STAR WARS™ fan, as well as a big Reds fan.
