Reds Opening Night first pitch to be thrown by local Olympian Nick Goepper

First 20,000 fans to receive 2014 Reds calendar

CINCINNATI -- If forecasted rain showers don’t ruin the Cincinnati Reds chance to redeem themselves against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, the ballpark will pack in the fun for Opening Night.

After an upsetting Opening Day game when the Reds were shut out 1-0, Wednesday’s 7:10 p.m. game offers the local team another chance for a win.

The ballpark has a lot of fun planned for fans if the game isn't rained out.

Tri-State Olympic medalist Nick Goepper is scheduled to throw the ceremonial first pitch and the well-known 80’s cover band, The Rusty Griswolds, will perform from right field during inning breaks and after the game.

Not to mention, the first 20,000 fans will receive a 2014 Reds team calendar.

The game starts at 7:10 and will be followed by post-game fireworks.
