Opening Day in Cincinnati

posted by Brian Combs - 

It is a tradition unlike any other in Major League Baseball. Today is the 142nd Opening Day in Cincinnati.

The first pitch for the Reds Vs. Nationals is at 4:10 today and you can follow all the action live on Newsradio 700 WLW. The gates to Great American Ballpark open at 2:10 and the team plans a number of special events to commemorate the start of the new season. You can see the complete list and times below.

Before the game this year there is a giant block party at the Banks which starts at 11am. All proceeds from the event benefit the baseball and softball programs at the P&G MLB Cincinnati Reds Youth Academy. There is no Findlay Market Parade on Opening Day this year, it will take place on Monday downtown.

In addition to carrying the game live, Newsradio 700 WLW will be broadcasting live leading up to the game from the Holy Grail at the Banks.
