Tonight is Police & Fire Appreciation #2 for the 2016 season.  During pregame ceremonies we will welcome the Pipe & Drum Corps of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office for an on-field performance.  We’ll also have ceremonial first pitches by representatives of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Cincinnati Police Department and Cincinnati Fire Department.  Leading us in the singing of our National Anthem will be Hamilton County Sheriff Deputies Jeffrey & James Whitacre.  A Moment of Remembrance for all fallen members of our police, fire & EMS will take place prior to the Anthem.

On display in the Fan Zone tonight will be the traveling 911Steel exhibit.  911Steel was formed in 2016 as a partnership between the Fire Museum of Greater Cincinnati and the Goodtimers Foundation. The partnership was formed to create and maintain a traveling monument (911Steel) to keep alive the memory of the events of 9/11.

With each “Kroger K” during the 2016 season, Reds corporate partners Kroger & Sargento Natural Cheese have committed to a donation to the Reds Community Fund.  Tonight Kroger & Sargento will present the RCF with a donation of $5,000 as part of this community-minded partnership.
