SUNDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Today the first 8,000 kids 14 and younger to the ballpark will receive a free Mascot Magnet (Mr. Red), presented by Delta Air Lines. Due to an expected big crowd today, gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 11:05AM for Season Ticket Holders and 11:20AM for the general public.
Today is the third Military Appreciation Day of the 2014 season, presented by GovX.com. The Reds will be wearing their digi-camouflage jerseys for the second time this season. During pregame ceremonies we will partner with Wright Patterson Air Force Base for several events and activations including a swearing-in ceremony for new Airmen, as well as a welcome home ceremony for those who recently returned from overseas duty.
Wright Brass, from the United States Air Force Band of Flight, will play God Bless America during the middle of the 7th inning break today.
Following the game today we will host the annual Reds Community Fund “Family Catch” event on the field. Hundreds of participants will get the opportunity to play catch in the outfield grass of Great American Ball Park, with proceeds benefitting the Reds Community Fund’s youth baseball & softball initiatives.
