FRIDAY’S #REDS LINEUP
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Tonight is the 5th Fireworks Friday of the 2016 season, presented by Coca-Cola. The postgame display, featuring Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks set to a “Bunbury Weekend” soundtrack, will begin approximately 10 minutes after the conclusion of tonight’s game.
Tonight is the kick-off to the 44th annual GE Weekend with the Cincinnati Reds. Over 13,000 GE employees and their families will be joining us at games this weekend and participating in traditional GE Weekend pregame activities.
During pregame ceremonies we will honor Lisette Martinez, until recently the Director of Diversity and Language Services at TriHealth, as the Reds 2016 SEAT 21 honoree. SEAT 21 – is an honor given to a well-known person in the community who embodies the humanitarian spirit of MLB Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente.
“Sam” the Bald Eagle from the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden will be making a ceremonial flight from the Cincinnati Bell Riverboat Deck to the pitcher’s mound at the conclusion of tonight’s National Anthem. This is the first of five ceremonial flights that Sam will make this season.
