SATURDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
**Breaking: Aroldis Chapman has been activated from the disabled list. Curtis Partch has been optioned to AAA-Louisville.
From my pal @Bongreatness...
The first 25,000 fans inside Great American Ball Park tonight will receive a Homer Bailey Dual No-Hitter Bobblehead, courtesy of Unilever. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 5:10PM for Season Ticket Holders and 5:40PM for the general public. However, those gate opening times could be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code should the crowd size outside the gates dictate it so.
During pregame ceremonies tonight local law firm Freking & Betz will be making a donation of just over $15,000 to the Reds Community Fund, as the proceeds of the second Reds Opening Day pre-party, held annual at The Phoenix.
It is expected that the Cincinnati Bengals top 3 draft choices – CB Darqueze Dennard, RB Jeremy Hill & DE Will Clarke will all be in attendance at today’s game and the trio will serve as tonight’s Honorary Captains.
