Reds May be Opening 2010 Against the Defending World Champs

Of course, we don’t have any particular reason to think that the Cardinals will win it all, but if anyone from the NLC is going to do it…besides, it makes opening day sound all the more difficult to get tickets to.

So, the Reds released their 2010 schedule today. Features beyond Opening Day include an interleague west coast trip, where they’ll go up against the Mariners, as well as 5 weekend series against the Cubs, which is, of course, great for ticket sales, but a pain in the ass for Reds fans.

Hispanic Heritage Night at Great American Ball Park

When the team’s eliminated from the division, but the players are actually not sucking *all* the time, you might as well head out to the ball park to take in some of the wacky fun cooked up for you by the team’s crack marketing staff.

javy_valentinCase in point: September 19 is Hispanic Heritage night, Mascot Wiffle Ball, AND a free visor and/or cap! From the website:

¬°Guarde La Fecha!

¬°Celebra con nosotros la Noche de la Herencia Hispana el Sabado 19 de Septiembre en el Great American Ball Park!

Special guest band “Tropicoso” will be performing in the Fan Zone! Receive a free Reds cap with Sun/Moon Deck ticket purchase! Pregame Mascot Wiffle Ball Game featuring Mr. Redlegs, Gapper, Rosie Red and more!

The first 5,000 fans will receive a free Goodyear Ballpark visor celebrating the Reds’ new Spring Training home.

It will be the perfect day to commemorate the contributions of the Latin Love Machine, Javier Valentín. Where would the team be right now if not for the mojo contributed by his mustache?
