From my pal @Bongreatness

Leading us in the singing of our National Anthem this evening will be Priscilia Le Foll, who plays “The Shaman” in Cirque du Soleil’s TORUK — The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, with performances at U.S. Bank Arena, May 4th through May 8th.

In the middle of the 4th inning tonight the Reds will recognize the loss to our local community of Cincinnati firefighter Jordan Pieniazek with an “In Memoriam” videoboard tribute. (Additionally, Firefighter Pieniazek’s life will be recognized at next Monday night’s “Police & Fire Appreciation Night” during our Moment of Remembrance prior to the singing of our National Anthem that evening.)
