For baseball fans, there is arguably no one team greater than the Big Red Machine of the 1970’s. With a huge fan base that came out of the Big Red Machine era, the Cincinnati Reds are taking players, coaches, announcers, front office personnel, and mascots on the road with the Reds Caravan. This year, the southern leg of the tour is coming to the CoolSprings Galleria on Friday January 29th at 6pm.
After making their Nashville area stop at Rivergate the past few years, the Caravan is moving south to the Galleria this year. In this year’s southern leg of the tour, the Reds will be sending announcers Jim Kelch and Jeff Brantley, speedy centerfielder Billy Hamilton, top prospect Jesse Winker, Senior Vice President and new General Manager Dick Williams, mascot Rosie Red, and, for the Nashville stop only, shortstop Zack Cozart.
The Caravan stop will give fans a chance to ask questions of those on the panel and can get autographs as time allows. “The Caravan is our official kick-off to the new season and our players, coaches, broadcasters and front office personnel are excited to meet with loyal fans in every corner of Reds Country,” said Reds COO Phil Castellini. The Reds will also be giving away two tickets to their opening day contest on April 4th against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Reds Caravan stop will be on January 29th at the Cool Springs Galleria from 6pm until 8:30pm and will be free and open to the public.
