THURSDAY’S #REDS LINEUP
From my pal @Bongreatness…
Today is the 3rd Military Appreciation Game of the 2016 season, presented by Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Hankook Tire as we celebrate the United States Coast Guards’ 226th birthday and the Coast Guard Reserves’ 75th anniversary. Members of local Coast Guard units will serve as our Honor Guard for today’s game and Chief Warrant Officer Kevin Cador will deliver the official game ball as part of our celebration.
Also during pregame ceremonies we welcome representatives of the teams playing in MLB’s 2016 Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) World Series. The RBI World Series is being hosted by the Reds for the first time in the tournament’s 24-year history. Twenty-four baseball and softball teams from 19 cities around the United States and the Dominican Republic will compete Aug. 3-16 at several locations throughout Cincinnati including Great American Ball Park, Xavier University, Mason High School and the P&G Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy.
