redsfest 2010
Billed as Major League Baseball’s premiere fan festival, Redsfest is your chance to meet and interact with current and former Reds players as they look forward to the beginning of next season with Spring Training in February. Come out and see manager Dusty Baker and some of your favorite Reds, like Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman, or check out some of the up-and-coming minor leaguers, like Billy Hamilton, Yasmani Grandal and Brad Boxberger.

After you collect autographs from the current Reds, stop by and talk to some of the beloved alumni of the organization, including George Foster, Tom Browning, Eric Davis, Mario Soto and Chris Sabo. And, of course, Redsfest would not be complete without the presence of Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman and the rest of the broadcast teams from both 700 WLW and FOX Sports Ohio.

If meeting and greeting isn’t your thing, you can take part in a variety of activities and events, such as testing out your fastball in the speed pitch challenge, watching the unveiling of the new Mr. Red mascot or competing in the Reds Community Fund Texas Hold ’Em Poker Tournament. Proceeds from Redsfest will benefit the Reds Community Fund. $17 adults, $7 children (single day admission); $25 adults, $12 children (two-day passes). 4-10:30 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m Saturday at the Duke Energy Convention Center.
