From my pal @Bongreatness…
The first 25,000 fans in attendance at today’s game will receive a #TeamCincinnati tee-shirt, courtesy of Butterbee’s American Grille. Gates to the ballpark are scheduled to open at 2:10PM for Season Ticket Members and 2:40PM for all other fans. However those gate opening times may be adjusted in accordance with Cincinnati Fire Code should the crowd size outside the gates dictate it so.
During pregame ceremonies the Reds will honor a group of longtime Season Ticket Members for their continued support of the franchise.
Also during pregame ceremonies Cincinnati Reds Hall of Famer Leo Cardenas will be inducted into the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame. The Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame was established in San Francisco on October 24, 1998, and is dedicated to recognize the contributions of Hispanic players in baseball. To date, the Hispanic Heritage Baseball Museum Hall of Fame has inducted 66 players and managers and today will add their 67th member.
