#REDSCARAVAN IN RICHMOND

Chuck’s Sports Bar in Richmond, Indiana has the best pizza on the trip so far. Outstanding. Thanks to our friends at Reds on Radio affiliate WKBV Radio. – Rob Butcher

#REDSCARAVAN: REDS FANS INVADE SLUGGER FIELD

Rob Butcher and the Western leg in Louisville tonight

As always, a huge stop in Louisville, this year at the Bats’ Louisville Slugger Park. Presiding Mayor Corky Miller was king. We estimated about 600-700 people. Great, great event attended by Bob Castellini and Joe Morgan. The Bats did a terrific job. Our crew stayed late to accommodate an extra 150 people. Talk about Rock Stars!!

#REDSCARAVAN: VEVAY!!

Rob Butcher, Reds Director of Media Relations, is a blogging machine

The Hoosier Theater in Vevay, Indiana is my personal favorite stop. What a great venue. It was our first “formal” question-and-answer session, leading to the inevitable inquiries about Aroldis Chapman’s move from the bullpen to the rotation, yesterday’s 2015 All-Star Game announcement and Jay Bruce’s performance at the Grand Ole Opry as accompanied by the legendary Garth Brooks. More about that later. Louisville Slugger Field, our biggest stop, is next.
