INDEPENDENCE DAY LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the Fireworks Friday #7 of the 2014 season, presented by Popsicle. The 15-minute postgame fireworks show, featuring Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks set to a patriotic 4th of July soundtrack, will begin approximately 10 minutes after the conclusion of tonight’s game. 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 change in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code should the crowd size outside the gates dictate it so.
Today is Military Appreciation Day #4 of the 2014 season, presented by GovX.com. Many of today’s pregame activities are being done in conjunction with the local agencies of the USO.
During pregame ceremonies today we will join teams across Major League Baseball in the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s “Luckiest Man” speech. Prior to a ceremony honoring representatives of 4 ALS charity organizations we will play the Major League Baseball produced video featuring current MLB players reciting Gehrig’s speech.
During the middle of the 7th inning break today we will be joined by Heather Rousch, in conjunction with the USO, as she leads us in the singing of God Bless America.
