SATURDAY’S #REDS LINEUP AND RUNDOWN
From my pal @Bongreatness...
The first 25,000 fans in attendance at today’s game will receive a Nasty Boys triple bobblehead, courtesy of PNC Bank. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 11:10AM for Season Ticket Holders and 11:40AM for the general public. However, those gate opening times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code should the crowd size outside the gates dictate it so.
Today’s on-field ceremonies for the 25-Year Reunion of the 1990 World Series Champions Reds are scheduled to begin at 12:30PM. Ceremonies will include:
• A red carpet parade of the 1990 team through the Fan Zone and through the stands of Great American Ball Park onto the field
• Highlight videos
• A tribute to the late Tim Layana, Rick Mahler & Marge Schott
• Special messages from 1990 Reds First Base Coach Tony Perez & 1990 Manager Lou Piniella
• Speeches by Reds COO Phil Castellini and National Baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin
• A simultaneous first pitch by 1990 Reds All-Stars Randy Myers, Rob Dibble, Chris Sabo & Barry Larkin
Should inclement weather keep today’s ceremonies from taking place on the field, we intend to hold the ceremonies from inside the new Handlebar at The Riverfront Club. If the ceremonies are forced inside, they will still start at approximately 12:30PM so that today’s sellout crowd, as well as the fans watching at home on FOX Sports Ohio and listening on the Reds on Radio network, can still enjoy today’s celebration of the 1990 Reds.
