The Reds have several other exciting items lined up for the day.
The first 20,000 fans will receive a Reds Fleece Blanket courtesy of
Duke Energy. There will be booths featuring all the great
things that our organization does for the communities that we have
serve. The Reds also have some surprise activities that will
involve our Bigs and Littles joining the players on the ball field.
