Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!

Scooter Gennett had four home runs including a grand slam, 10 RBIs and 17 total bases in tonight’s game against the Cardinals. Have yourself a game, Scooter Gennett!
He became the first Red to ever hit 4 HRs in one game, and just the 17th player in MLB history. WOW! 😀🙃👊💪💯⚾️❤️

Reds baseball game #4.

Tonight, our Reds were taking on the Cleveland Indians in the second game of this year’s Ohio Cup. It was a pretty night so we went to our fourth Reds game of this baseball season…

Amir Garrett was pitching for the Reds…

He took a line drive off his non-pitching hand in the first

Like I said, it was a really pretty evening…

ARIMSMENDY ALCANTARA!

Eugenio Suarez hit a pinch-hit three-run homer to tie the game at seven

BARGE!

The Reds ended losing the game 8-7. :/

But it sure was great to be back at the ball park again. 🙂

NYPD & Reds baseball.

This evening we ordered a Station House Pizza from NYPD and watched the Reds. NYPD pizza and Reds baseball sounds like a pretty perfect Tuesday evening to me…

We really like NYPD’s pizzas. They’re such good stuff. But the Reds lost 12-3 to the Pirates. :/

Reds baseball game #3.

We got up and moving this morning because we had tickets to this afternoon’s Reds baseball game. Easter Sunday baseball church! And it was our third Red’s game of the season so far. We got down to Great American Ball Park a little early so we could try to find our Reds All-Star Legacy brick again. We looked and looked and looked for it last season but didn’t have any luck finding it. Today, we asked someone in the Reds Hall of Fame if they could help us track it down and they led us right to them. There five trees just to the Ohio River side of the Main Gate at Crosley Terrace. Each tree represents one of the five All-Star games Cincinnati has hosted in its illustrious past. We found our brick in the 1953 All-Star game grouping…

Pretty cool stuff! Thanks again to JJVE for getting us our Reds All-Star Legacy brick!

We were so excited to find our brick that I completely forget to take my usual photo of the outside of GABP before we headed in…

We had tickets up in the Cincinnati Bell Fioptics District again. But the ballpark was really empty so we decided to start the game in a virtually empty section of seats down the third base line…

We were sharing our section with this bird and that was pretty much it…

Sal Romano was making his first MLB start against the Brewers today…

Arismendy Alcantara has one of the greatest names of all times…

Arismendy Alcantara used to play for the Cubs. I loved when the Reds would play the Cubs just so I could say his name. And now he plays for the Reds! Hopefully, he starts getting more playing time soon.

While we were still sitting in the down the third place line, one of the Brewers hit a line drive foul ball that ricocheted off some seats, bounced off the nacho concession stand behind us, landed a few rows behind us and rolled under the seats and Genifer reached over to pick it up in the row behind us. And after 200+ Reds games, we finally have our first foul ball…

The live Sunday Reds mascot race…

And this one belongs to Mr. Redlegs…

I’ll always remember the seats where we got our very first foul ball at GABP. Section 109, row KK seats 19 and 20…

After that, we headed upstairs to the Cincinnati Bell Fioptics District…

 

On our way upstairs, we tried the new Cheetos popcorn…

It was really good stuff! Cheesy popcorn mixed with Cheetos….

The Reds got 10 strikeouts this afternoon. So close to more free pizza but yet so far…

And the Reds dropped this game to the Brew Crew 4-2…

It was a perfect afternoon for baseball. And about a half hour after we got home from the game, it started pouring and rained for the rest of the day. That’s what I call pretty perfect timing. I’m glad they were able to get the game in before the storm rolled in. 🙂

Reds baseball game #2.

Tonight, we went down to Great American Ball Park to celebrate Genifer’s birthday at our second Reds baseball game of the season

We had tickets in the Cincinnati Bell Fioptics District

GABP welcomed Bronson Arroyo back to the mound for the first time since 2014 after he had Tommy John surgery. And it was Bronson’s first start for the Reds after he elected to test the free agency market and left for the D-Backs back in 2013…

Bronson Arroyo was always one of our favorite Reds pitchers

How does he still get his leg that high?

BARGE!

Despite the Reds being in first place, there weren’t many people at tonight’s game…

Unfortunately, the Reds lost 1-5 to the Brewers.

It was just a beautiful night for a baseball game. And win or lose, the Reds games are always so much fun. It’s just amazing to be back at the ballpark. It’s my happy place. 🙂

HAPPY OPENING DAY!

I designed this Opening Day graphic to hang in our front windows at work…

And I had my #CapsOn for Opening Day…

I wore one of my favorite Reds ballcaps for #CapsOn Opening Day. I won this hat in a giveaway from Skyline. It’s one of my favorite caps because it has two of my favorite Cincinnati things embroidered on it, Reds and Skyline…

Baseball is back! We can’t wait for Opening Night! ❤⚾❤

Reds baseball game #14.

We went to the second to last Reds Sunday church baseball game of the season…

It was our fourteenth Reds game of the season…

The Pirates Jason Jaso came in to pinch hit…

We saw this guy in the boxes below us, and thought Mat Latos was back in the house…

Time for the Sunday live edition of the Reds mascot race…

Gapper just edged out Fritz the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati mascot…

The Pirates were down to their last strike…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

It’s always great to be back at the ballpark. With a doubt, GABP is one of my favorite places to be in all of Cincinnati. 🙂

Reds baseball game #10.

Our final Sunday Reds game where we could just walk down the street to GABP…

Today, the Reds were retiring Pete’s Rose’s iconic #14…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

🙂

Reds baseball game #9.

Tonight, we walked down to GABP to watch our Reds take on those whiny bird Cardinals from St. Louis…

Because one our favorite ex-Reds pitchers was on the hill tonight, Mike Leake!

BARGE!

These guy were either giving the $1 hot dog stand a work-out, or doing the All-You-Can-Eat-Seats the right way…

Adam Duvall hit a dinger for the Reds…

The Cardinals tied the game at 6 in the top of the ninth…

In the bottom of ninth, Joey Votto hit a walk-off home run for the Reds win! Walk-off, Mr. Votto! Walk-off!

The Reds game are always fun, especially when they win! 🙂

Reds baseball game #5.

On a whim, we went to our fifth Reds game of the season tonight…

The Reds were playing the Pirates again…

There were a couple of plays that went under review…

This play at second ended up in the Pirates manager, Clint Hurdle and Starling Marte both getting tossed out of the game…

Our friends Scott and Cathy were at tonight’s game as well…

Bryan Price wasn’t happy about Oldendorf getting tossed after the Reds pitchers combined to plunk four Pirate batters…

The Reds led most of the game that featured five home runs (one by Jay Bruce), six hit batters and four ejections. But trailed 5-4 going into the ninth. Joey Votto came on to work some magic for the Reds and reached base on a walk…

But there wouldn’t be any late game heroics tonight for the Reds. And the game would go on to finish 5-4 Pirates

It was fun to get in another Reds game before they head out for a five-game road trip. 🙂

Reds baseball game #4.

The last time we saw Johnny Cueto pitch at Great American Ball Park was the day we got engaged all the way back last summer in July. He got traded to the Kansas City Royals, got his ring and then was traded to the San Francisco Giants. The Giants were in town for three games and guess who was pitching the first game of the series… our boy Johnny Beisbol.

We picked up seats in the new Cincinnati Bell Fioptics District Rooftop on Saturday before we left for the FC Cincinnati match against Wilmington Hammerheads FC. Let’s go…

Johnny Beisbol…

Cueto versus Votto…

And Cueto got was better than Votto in the first. Cueto versus BP?

After Cueto go through the first, we headed up to Cincinnati Bell’s The Fioptics District…

We moved down to the terrace to watch some more of the game…

The Giants jumped out to a 3-0 lead in second… BARGE!

Cueto versus Votto round two…

And Votto took Cueto yard!

The storm clouds were looking pretty ominous. But the rain stayed away. For once.

The Reds roughed up Cueto for six runs in the third…

Back up to The Fioptics District Rooftop…

Genifer got a hot dog, and I got some chicken fingers. I offered to share my chicky fingers with her but she wasn’t impressed. She was pretty adamant that chicken fingers aren’t baseball food. Baseball food or not, they were pretty delicious…

The Reds bullpen imploded. Again. And gave up five runs in the top of the seventh…

And the Reds ended up losing 9-6. It’s going to be a long season. :/ But The Fioptics District is a really fun area to hang out in. It offers a really different perspective of the game. Good stuff. 🙂

Reds baseball game #3.

It was really pretty out this afternoon. So we walked down to GABP to see the Reds take on those Chicago Cubbies for Reds game #3 of the season

We got some walk-up tickets to the game for just $6 using our PNC Reds card. We had no idea what was going on at the front gates to GABP. But there were incredibly long lines waiting to get into the ballpark, and this was right as the game was about to start…

It was worse than trying to get into last summer’s All-Star Game or one of the Reds postseason games…

It was a surprisingly full house for Sunday baseball despite the Reds being walloped 16-0 and no-hit by the Cubs Jake Arrieta back on Thursday…

I wonder how many of the people at the game were Cubs fans though. There was an awful lot of Cubbie blue in the stands this afternoon…

There was the Sunday live edition of the Reds Mascot race…

And this one belongs to Mr. Redlegs…

One of favorite Reds, Tucker Barnhart made an appearance…

We got some dogs…

Then we moved up to the view level out in left field…

It’s hard to take a selfie with your sunglasses on…

This one was better…

Boom! Pow! Cubs win! Cubs win! Holy cow…

Oh well. It was beautiful Sunday for baseball, and it’s always fun to be at the ballpark regardless if Reds win or lose. And I can only imagine that they’ll be doing more than their fair share of losing this season. :/

Reds baseball game #2.

Looking out our window a few hours before game time, it looked like it was going to be a really nice day. The sun was out. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. And there wasn’t any wind. The wind’s been the kicker this week. After we walked Oscar, we decided to head down to the ballpark to take in our second Reds game of the season. We just got some walk-up tickets from the box office. When Genifer went to pay for the tickets with her PNC Reds debit card, our $14 tickets instantly became $6 tickets. Who knew that our PNC Reds cards got us discounted tickets Sunday through Thursday at the GABP? So that was pretty awesome. And we were so impressed that I forgot to take a photo of the front of the ballpark. I must be rusty and out of practice.

We decided to watch the start of the game from under the PNC Power Stacks…

I never did figure out why all the mascots started the game in bib overalls…

Tim Melville was making his Major League debut today…

We moved upstairs to our normal Reds habitat, upper deck down the third base line…

And that was about the last time we saw the sun…

They’re doing Strikeouts for Slices again this season! HOORAY!

The first live Sunday Reds Mascot Race of the season. This one belonged to Mr. Red…

We had our first under review play of the season…

And they got it right on the field, he was out at home…

The sun completely disappeared on us and the wind picked up. So we ended up watching most of the game from the relative warmth of the Cincinnati Bell FiOptics Gigabar out in the left field corner of the view level.

Tim Melville went 4 innings giving up five hits and a run in his debut. Eugenio Suarez crushed his fourth home run of the season. And the Reds won on a Jay Bruuuuuce walk-off triple score BP all the way from first base

Two games. Two walk-off wins! Another chilly but great day at the ballpark! Who would have thought the Reds would start the season 5-1? ⚾ 🙂

HAPPY OPENING DAY!

Happy Opening Day from Eighth Street in downtown Cincinnati! #BaseballIsBack!
⚾️👍👌:) Here is the rundown of all today’s pregame events around downtown Cincinnati. And more here. But… with FC Cincinnati’s inaugural home opener on Saturday, I think this should officially be dubbed OPENING WEEK! ⚽️ 🏆 💯 

Taken with Instagram.

We have our tickets for Opening Night of the 2016 season of Cincinnati Reds baseball…

We can’t wait for the baseball season to start! Taken with Instagram. 🙂
