THURSDAY’S GAME ONE LINEUPS: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
TRANSACTION: Last night, RHP Nick Christiani was optioned to Class AAA Louisville…this morning, the contract of LHP Jeff Francis (#26) was selected from Louisville and RHP Mat Latos was transferred to the 60-day disabled list…a roster addition will be made in between games of today’s doubleheader, when by rule both teams can add a 26th player.
From my pal @Bongreatness...
Game #1 of today’s doubleheader is scheduled for a 12:35PM start time. There will be a separate Production Capsule sent later this afternoon for Game #2.
Game #1 is Weather Day at Great American Ball Park. Part educational field trip/part fun day at the ballpark, Weather Day will bring in hundreds of area middle school students for today’s game. The students will participate in a Weather Day education program with the meteorologists from FOX19 and take a tour of the Fan Zone for more educational opportunities from over 10 local organizations. The Weather Day program takes place on the first base side of the stands and will utilize the GABP videoboard beginning at 10AM this morning.
Please note that the National Anthem for Game #1 is scheduled at 12:25PM, to accommodate today’s national TV broadcast on FS1.
**Great American Ball Park will be cleared out between Game #1 & Game #2. Fans with tickets to both games will still need to exit the ballpark and re-enter when the gates reopen. Gates are scheduled to open for Game #2 at 5:10PM, however that time could be adjusted based on the finishing time of Game #1.
