THURSDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
From my pal @Bongreatness…
During pregame ceremonies today Reds second baseman/outfielder Skip Schumaker will receive his award as team recipient of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Associations “Heart & Hustle” Award. The Heart & Hustle Award is given annually to one member of each of the 30 MLB teams. Of the 30 team representatives, one player will be selected as the overall winner of the MLB Heart & Hustle Award, which will be awarded at a dinner in New York City this coming November. Past Reds team recipients of the award include Shin-Soo Choo (2013), Chris Heisey (2012), Miguel Cairo (2011), Jonny Gomes (2010), Adam Rosales (2009), Jerry Hairston Jr. (2008), Ryan Freel (2007) and Adam Dunn (2006).
Offering up a simultaneous first pitch today will be AVP tour players Emily Day & Summer Ross. This pair won its first AVP tournament last year at the Cincinnati Open, and is seeded third in the women’s bracket this week.
