SUNDAY’S #REDS LINEUP
From my pal @Bongreatness…
As a lead up to the Riverfest Cincinnati Fireworks taking place at 9PM tonight, there will be short bursts of fireworks near the ballpark (by Newport on the Levee) every hour on-the-hour starting at 12PM. We do not expect it to impact play, but team officials will monitor as the day progresses.
Kids 14 and younger in attendance at today’s game will receive a Todd Frazier poster, courtesy of Tri-County Mall.
During pregame ceremonies today we will present Todd Frazier with the Cincinnati Reds team award for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s “Heart & Hustle Award”. Todd will represent the Reds as a finalist for the overall Heart & Hustle Award which will be presented by the MLBPAA at the Legends for Youth Dinner in New York City on November 10th. Previous Reds team recipients of the Heart & Hustle Award include Skip Schumaker (2014), 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).
Also during pregame ceremonies today Todd Frazier will receive an official proclamation from Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann that declares Sunday, September 6th, 2015 as “Todd Frazier Day” in Hamilton County. The proclamation is in recognition of Todd’s inspiring performance and win in the 2015 Major League Baseball Home Run Derby.
During the middle of the 7th inning today we will be joined by the Krienke Sisters who will lead us in the singing of God Bless America.
