Did you know that tonight is Hispanic Heritage Night at Great American Ball Part?
The first 10,000 fans attending Friday's 7:10 p.m. game against the Chicago Cubs will receive a magnetic baseball card presented by Chiquita. The cards feature Reds players Juan Castro, Edwin Encarnacion and Javier Valentin and their home countries' flags.
Oh man! I'm going to miss it! You think if they're rained out tonight they'll save the magnets for tomorrow?
Speaking of tomorrow…did you know that it's Crosley Day? And the first 20,000 of you who join the bloggers will be treated to a 12-page excerpt from the new book Crosley: Two Brothers and a Business Empire that Transformed the Nation. Sounds like fun reading for the whole family!
Plus, there's going to be Crosley automobiles by the front gate, heirs throwing out ceremonial first pitches, and Crosley Field-related activities ion the Reds Hall of Fame.
One of these days, Blogger Day is going to be an official Reds-sponsored event. When that happens, you'll be treated to me singing the anthem, JD throwing out the first pitch, and Daedalus handing out Voodoo Alberts to the first 40,000 fans in attendance.
