The Reds Finally Realize Game 2 is a Big Deal

It looks like Red Reporter may have an effect on the Reds after all.  As you all know, for several years now, it has been a Red Reporter tradition to get together and go to Game 2.  We have braved all kinds of weather, and for the most part have sat in an empty stadium.

 

It looks like the Reds have taken notice, and decided to try and draw a crowd this year.  Maybe it was a good idea to buy tickets in advance?  We have long known that "Opening Night" (As they are now calling it) was going to have a kickass giveaway.  Who wouldn't want a Reds Snuggie?  However, it looks like they have a lot more planned.  Not too long ago, it  was announced that there would be fireworks after the game.  That's always a sure be to draw a good crowd.

 

They have also announces a slew of other game 2 activities.  As a Game 2 Veteran, I can assure you that none of these things have been happening in previous years. This is a rundown of "Opening Night's" events, or you can Click here for the Reds Site.
