Reds Opening Night 2017.

Today is National Walking Day! Even though the forecast called for lotsa rain, I really couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate than taking a walk down to Great American Ball Park for Reds Opening Night 2017! We parked by Lytle Park and walked down to the game…

I’ve been to every single Opening Night since 2010, and Genifer and I have been to every Opening Night together since 2012…

One of GABP’s new fatures this year is the Teppanyaki Grill featuring a $15 Bahn Mi sammich and a $20 Lobster Tail. Lobster Tail is baseball food right?

Also new is a Cheetos Popcorn stand. You can have Cheetos right in your popcorn…

The Fox Sports Ohio condominium was packed…

Another new food offering is Keystone mac & cheese…

A rainbow started to appear on the other side of the river…

Votto went yard to give the Reds a 1-0 lead…

Then Adam Duvall doubled. And Zack Cozart singled in DuvAll-Star to give the Reds a 2-0 lead. The Reds Brandon Finnegan tossed 7 innings of 1 hit ball with 9 Ks

Michael Lorenzen came into the game to get us strikeout number 10…

And NUMBER 11!


Raisel Iglesias came in to pitch the ninth and try to seal the deal for the Reds…

And this one belongs to the…

The final out of the game was a Philly getting caught stealing at second. But then the play was reviewed and the runner was called safe at second…

But it just gave Rasiel Igelsias the chance to notch another strikeout instead. BOOM!

What an incredible Reds Opening Night! The Reds won, Brandon Finnegan tossed seven fierce innings giving up just 1 hit with 9 Ks, Votto went yard, we get free Larosas pizza from the Reds 13 Ks, we got a free Reds 2017-18 calendar, the rain stayed away from the most part and we saw a rainbow! That’s what I call a great Opening Night!

Reds Opening Night 2016.

Tonight was Opening Night of the 2016 season of Reds baseball. It was another cold and rainy start a Reds baseball season. But at least this game started on time unlike last year’s Opening Night

We had about all we could stand of the rainy and the cold and the wind. The wind was the worst part. It just cut right through you. We wandered down the third base line of the upper deck to find the latest addition to GABP, the brand new The Fioptics District sponsored by Cincinnati Bell located in the left field corner of the View Level…

Upstairs there are soooo many TVs on this amazing patio. Tickets for the Fioptics District are just $15 and they include a $9 drink voucher for your first beer. The ticket also gives fans general admission access into sections 408-410, with both traditional ballpark seats as well as standing drink rails. And access to this incredible patio overlooking all of downtown and Mt. Adams…

Underneath the Fioptics District Rooftop is The Fioptics Gigabar…

The Reds were trailing 2-1 going into the ninth. Time for some rally caps!

AND THEY WORKED! Scott Schebler delivered a walk-off double with the bases loaded to give the Reds a 3-2 victory over the Phillies and the first two games of the season-opening series!

It was another great Opening Night! It definitely could have been warmer. But it was a great Opening Night nonetheless. Welcome back, baseball! 🙂
