The original opening day- March 29th was delayed until today because of weather. Hopefully, it won’t snow today!
This year baseball fans will be celebrating opening day twice. The first opening day game against the Nationals when the first pitch of the year marks the start of our season at Great American Ballpark
Today the whole town loves the Cincinnati Reds and if we’re not at the park for the game…we’re watching it on tv, sneaking quick looks at streaming video or … listening to the radio. First pitch at 4:10 pm
It’s hard for outsiders to understand but on opening day in Cincinnati everybody loves baseball and is a fan. In simple to understand terms – – we’re (unofficially) not open for any business but baseball today.
Things are a little weird this year. Around the country, opening day is earlier than normal. Hosting the traditional parade in the middle of Easter grocery shopping frenzy didn’t seem like a great idea for the vendors at Findlay Market. So next Monday is the 2nd official opening day with the traditional Findlay Market opening day parade followed by a baseball game against the Cubs.
