FRIDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’
Michael Lorenzen tonight will make the 42nd consecutive start by a Reds rookie pitcher, breaking the modern Major League record set by the 1902 Cardinals.
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 12th Fireworks Friday of the 2015 season, presented by Koorsen Fire & Security. Tonight’s postgame fireworks show, featuring Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks set to an All-American soundtrack, will begin approximately 15 minutes after the conclusion of tonight’s game. Prior to the start of the fireworks show we will welcome crew members of the USS LST 325. The amphibious shipping vessel which saw action on Omaha beach during D-Day will be docked in Cincinnati at the Public Landing from 9/12 through 9/16, offering tours to the public each day from 9am-5pm. 18 of the 20 crew members of the ship are veterans of the Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard & Army, including two veterans of World War II.
During pregame ceremonies tonight we will honor America and the memories of those lost in the 9/11 attacks as well as Police & Fire Appreciation Night with a series of activities including a performance by the Emerald Society bagpipers and ceremonial first pitches by representatives of the Cincinnati Police Department, Cincinnati Fire Department and Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Prior to the singing of our National Anthem, performed tonight by the 82nd Airborne All-American Chorus, we will unfurl a giant American flag in the outfield grass and observe a Moment of Silence. The giant flag today will be held by Reds Season Ticket Members and their families.
Please note that tonight’s National Anthem is scheduled a little earlier than normal, at 6:56PM.
During the middle of the 7th inning break tonight we will be joined by McKenna Medley who will lead us in the singing of God Bless America.
