From my pal @Bongreatness...
Kids 14 and younger at the ballpark today will receive a Kids PLAY BALL Bat and Ball Set as part of Major League Baseball’s PLAY BALL initiatives.
Today we will welcome over 100 participants from the 2016 Reds Fantasy Camp. As part of the Fantasy Camp Reunion these weekend warriors played a tournament at the P&G Reds Urban Youth Academy yesterday, are being introduced to the crowd at GABP today, and will play a reunion game on the field at Great American Ball Park tomorrow morning.
Today is Art at the Park, in conjunction with ArtsWave. ArtsWave supports more than 100 arts organizations that make the Greater Cincinnati region an amazing place to live. ArtsWave will provide today’s National Anthem singers (Voices of Destiny) and God Bless America singers (The Cincinnati Men’s Chorus). God Bless America will be performed during the middle of the 7th inning break today, and the chorus will be positioned on the right field porch area above Section 138.
As part of the Reds celebration of Major League Baseball’s PLAY BALL initiative, nine local Reds Heads members will be introduced and run onto the field just prior to the introduction of the Reds starters today. Each Reds Heads member will then receive an autograph on a Reds baseball cap from the player they meet.
