“WAY BACK WEDNESDAY” #REDS LINEUP
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Today over 600 boys and girls from the Reds Community Fund’s Reds Rookie Success League summer program will participate in a pregame parade around the field. The Reds Rookie Success League (RRSL), a free, coed, character-building summer baseball program, entering its fourteenth summer in Cincinnati and throughout Reds Country this season.
Also during pregame ceremonies today we will honor the Greater Cincinnati Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year finalists. Our four local finalists are Corie Hisle (Buenger Club), Tahjay Woodard (Findlay Street Club), Adrian Hall (MSU Club) & Kendal Neal (U.S. Bank Club).
Offering up one of our ceremonial first pitches today will be country music recording artist David Nail. Nail is in town promoting his newest album “Fighter”.
Today’s game will be televised on MLB Network. Today’s throwback uniforms are part of a league–wide initiative as the Braves will wear 1969 uniforms and Reds will wear uniforms from the early-2000’s era to honor Ken Griffey Jr.’s upcoming induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Reds are one of eight teams participating in MLB’s Throwback Day.
