Press Release: FOX Sports Ohio at Redsfest

Hard to believe that Redsfest is only 4 days away. Sometimes, time flies. On the other hand, I’ve already blocked out huge portions of the 2012 postseason, so maybe time doesn’t fly that fast after all.

Here’s some information Redsfest that FS Ohio sent. They’re going to have the “FOX Sports Ohio Girls” in attendance. I bet they’ll be wearing something inappropriately tight. I dare you to ask them when they think they’ll be grown up enough to be called “FOX Sports Ohio Women.”

CINCINNATI, OHIO – FOX Sports Ohio is proud to once again be the title sponsor of this year’s Redsfest. It will be held at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati this Friday, December 7 from 3pm to 10:30pm and Saturday, December 8 from 11am to 6:30pm. Proceeds from the event benefit the Reds Community Fund.

As the TV home of the Cincinnati Reds and title sponsor of Redsfest, FOX Sports Ohio will have a booth at the event, offering fans the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities.

* The FOX Sports Ohio Girls will be on site to meet fans, play games, and give away prizes.
* On Friday, fans will have the chance to have their photo taken behind the FOX Sports Ohio Reds Live desk.
* On Saturday, Reds broadcasters Jim Day, Jeff Piecoro and Jim Kelch will stop by the tent throughout the event to sign autographs.

Redsfest has grown to over 250,000 square feet of activities, including autograph and photo booths with current and former Reds players, interactive games for fans of all ages, hard-to-find memorabilia and much more. Over 50 current and former Reds players, coaches and broadcasters are scheduled to appear, and over 100 player autograph sessions and player photograph sessions are free of charge with a Redsfest general admission ticket. All current and former players in attendance will be introduced live on the Main Stage on Friday at 5:30 p.m.

New this year, Redsfest will expand to the third floor of the Duke Energy Convention Center to create a bigger and better Reds Heads Fun Zone for kids of all ages featuring a photo opportunity with Santa, arcade games, inflatables, player story time sessions, live music, circus performers and more.

With paid two-day admission, fans receive one free View Level ticket to the Reds vs. Angels Opening Night game on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at Great American Ball Park. Additionally, the first 10,000 fans each day will receive a free Reds winter headband and drawstring backpack.

Redsfest tickets are on sale now at reds.com, by phone at (513) 381-REDS, at the Great American Ball Park box office and at select Kroger stores with Ticketmaster retail outlets. Tickets will be available at the door starting Friday at 2pm and Saturday at 9am. Proceeds from Redsfest benefit the baseball-themed outreach programs of the Reds Community Fund.
