THURSDAY’S #REDS LINEUP: WHO’S YOUR ‘RED-TO-ROCK?’

NEW MLB-MANDATED SECURITY MEASURES TO BE IMPLEMENTED AT GABP

Walk-through metal detectors will be at ballpark gates starting Sept. 5

CINCINNATI (Sept. 4, 2014) — The Cincinnati Reds today announced that as part of Major League Baseball’s initiative to standardize security procedures at all 30 Major League parks for the start of the 2015 season, walk-through metal detectors will be phased-in at Great American Ball Park beginning on Friday, Sept. 5 for the start of the upcoming homestand.

The new metal detectors will be located at the main ballpark gates on Crosley Terrace (corner of 2nd and Joe Nuxhall Way) in an effort to acclimate fans and staff to the new procedures before the 2015 mandate.

All fans will be asked to remove cell phones and large metal objects from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. Ballpark staff will work diligently to ensure this procedure is timely and efficient.

Guests that cannot walk through the metal detectors due to medical conditions have the option of being manually checked with a hand-held detector.

These procedures, which result from MLB’s continuing work with the Department of Homeland Security to standardize security practices across the game, will be in addition to bag checks that are now uniform throughout all of MLB.

As has been the policy for many years, all bags will be checked and only MLB-compliant bags (16 in. x 16 in. x 8 in. or smaller) will be admitted.

“The safety of our fans is the number one priority for us at Great American Ball Park,” said Tim O’Connell, Reds Vice President of Ballpark Operations. “We are committed to the procedures that MLB has asked us to implement and our staff is dedicated to maintaining the highest security standards possible.”

Beginning in 2015, all game-day entrances to Great American Ball Park will follow this protocol.

During pregame ceremonies today Reds second baseman/outfielder Skip Schumaker will receive his award as team recipient of the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Associations “Heart & Hustle” Award.  The Heart & Hustle Award is given annually to one member of each of the 30 MLB teams.  Of the 30 team representatives, one player will be selected as the overall winner of the MLB Heart & Hustle Award, which will be awarded at a dinner in New York City this coming November.  Past Reds team recipients of the award include 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).

Offering up a simultaneous first pitch today will be AVP tour players Emily Day & Summer Ross. This pair won its first AVP tournament last year at the Cincinnati Open, and is seeded third in the women’s bracket this week.

Tonight is the annual Rosie Reds “Guest of the Reds” Night.  The Rosies recently celebrated their 50th anniversary as an organization and tonight they will participate in a pregame parade and ceremonial first pitch.

We will also recognize and salute representatives of the four charitable organizations who were beneficiaries in the inaugural “Schu’s Crew Fantasy Football Challenge”, which is taking place at the ballpark today.  The event brings together fans with many of the Reds players in a fantasy football league which raises valuable funds for charity.  Skip Schumaker brought the concept to Cincinnati this year, after its launch by Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright in St. Louis last season.  The charitable organizations that today’s event benefitted include Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, the Jessie Rees Foundation, the Reds Community Fund and Big League Impact.
