FRIDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 9th Fireworks Friday of the 2014 season, presented by Homemade Brand Ice Cream. Tonight’s fireworks show will feature a soundtrack provided LIVE by the CSO Pops, under the direction of John Morris Russell, with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks. The Pops will be performing from the Kroger Fan Zone Field and the performance will be broadcast on the videoboard so that fans may see and hear the music, while enjoying the fireworks show from the seating bowl. The Pops postgame performance will include 15-minutes of music prior to the show, and an extended 20-minute fireworks show.
Also joining us at the ballpark tonight and all weekend long will be the Racing Presidents. George, Tom, Abe, Teddy & Bill will be participating in various activities around the ballpark, including on-field races at the end of the 4th inning every game this weekend. They will also appear in the Fan Zone in from the 5th – middle 6th inning of each game for photos with fans. Tonight they will also join us for a special postgame relay race with Mr. Red, Mr. Redlegs, Rosie & Gapper, along with “Screech”, the Nationals eagle mascot.
Tonight is the fourth of five “Sam” the Bald Eagle flights of the 2014 season. Sam will fly from the Cincinnati Bell Riverboat Deck in centerfield to the pitcher’s mound at the conclusion of tonight’s National Anthem, being performed by the CSO Pops Brass.
