HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12
From my pal @Bongreatness…
We will resume last night’s suspended game at 12:30PM. The game time for the regularly scheduled game will be announced shortly after the conclusion of the suspended game, but will not start prior to 1:05PM. Our National Anthem will be sung prior to the resumption of the suspended game and is scheduled for 12:22PM.
All fans in attendance today will receive a Pete Rose “Stars of the Queen City” bobblehead, courtesy of Queen City Sausage. In order to accommodate the large crowd expected at today’s game gates for Season Ticket Members will open at 11AM and gates for all fans will open at 11:25AM. However, those times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code should the crowd size outside the gates dictate it so.
During ceremonies that will take place between the completion of the suspended game and start of the regularly scheduled game we will honor Pete Rose who will receive a proclamation from Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Mann declaring Saturday, September 12th, 2015 as “Pete Rose Day” in the City of Cincinnati. Pete will also receive the “Key to the City” from the Vice Mayor.
Please note that due to the USS LST 325 docked at the Public Landing, there will be no “boomer” fireworks for today or tomorrow’s game for any Reds home run or win. We will still shoot fireworks from the PNC Power Stacks each day.
Fans holding tickets for last night’s game (Friday) can exchange those tickets at face value for any remaining 2015 Cincinnati Reds regular season home game (excluding today’s sold out game), subject to availability. Ticket exchanges are available at Great American Ball Park in advance of game day only.
Fans holding premium tickets can exchange those tickets for non-premium tickets for any remaining 2015 Cincinnati Reds regular season home game (excluding today’s sold out game), subject to availability.
The Reds’ 23 rain delays have totaled 30 hours, 25 minutes and led to 5 postponents (4/25 vs Cubs, 5/8 at WSox, 6/18 vs Det, 7/8 at Wsh, 9/4 vs Mil) and 2 suspended games (6/27 at NYM, completed 6/28; 9/11 vs StL)…the 24 hours, 26 minutes in 17 weather delays at Great American Ball Park is the highest total at home since the Reds started tracking weather delays in 1978.
