From my pal @Bongreatness

During pregame ceremonies today we will present Zack Cozart with the Cincinnati Reds team award for the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association’s “Heart & Hustle Award”.  Zack will represent the Reds as a finalist for the overall Heart & Hustle Award which will be presented by the MLBPAA at the Legends for Youth Dinner in New York City on November 15th.  Previous Reds team recipients of the Heart & Hustle Award include Todd Frazier (2015), Skip Schumaker (2014), Shin Soo-Choo (2013), Chris Heisey (2012), Miguel Cairo (2011), Jonny Gomes (2010), Adam Rosales (2009), Jerry Hairston Jr. (2008), Ryan Freel (2007) and Adam Dunn (2006).

Also today the Reds welcome The Grandpa Soap Company, founded in Tippecanoe, Ohio in 1878 and known for their famous Grandpa’s Pine Tar Wonder Soap.  In recognition of their continuous operation for 138 years in Reds Country, with the last 80 years being right here in Greater Cincinnati, Grandpa Soap would like to show their support to local youth baseball & softball with a donation of 5,000 bars of soap to the participants of the many youth programs of the Reds Community Fund
