It’s almost here! I just bought my tickets, going to be there all weekend!
Redsfest is always an exciting time. It is two days of baseball during the doldrums of the year without baseball. Anybody whose anybody, within the Reds organization, will be there.
I’m particularly excited to get to see what sort of plans they have for celebrating the 150th year of professional baseball’s oldest team. The uniforms look awesome, and I may just have to shell out a few buck for a throwback jersey from the early 1900’s.
I’m also intrigued by the chance to get to meet some current players I’ve not yet met, like Phil Ervin, Eugenio Suarez, Tucker Barnhart and new players (fingers crossed for an ace). I’m also hoping to get to hear from the new coaching staff and the front office, who are seemingly on the same page.
Regardless of the details, for two days I will be immersed in the Cincinnati Reds, what more can I ask for?
