FRIDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 8th Fireworks Friday of the 2015 season, presented by TriHealth. The postgame fireworks display will be set to a Country Music Throwdown soundtrack and feature Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks. The show will begin approximately 15 minutes after the conclusion of tonight’s game and will be preceded by an attempt by local strongman Sean McCarthy to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for “Furthest Washing Machine Throw – Individual”.
During pregame ceremonies tonight we will showcase the Ohio Cup, presented by the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The Ohio Cup has been won outright 6 times by the Indians (retained 6 times) and has been won outright by the Reds 5 times. Due to a 3-game sweep by the Indians of the Reds earlier this season, the Reds must win all 3-games during this weekend’s series to retain the Cup.
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted will offer up one of tonight’s ceremonial first pitches.
