I finally made it to my first Reds game of the season, which is actually more than a month before my first game last year. Friends of ours were married on Saturday evening and they bought a block of tickets for the Friday night game for added celebration.
It also was a big celebration for us as it was Trey’s first Reds game. The employee who collected our tickets asked if it was his first game and directed us toward guest services where they printed out this certificate free of charge. I think you can also get certificates on your birthday or for an anniversary as well. Trey really loved the game, especially all the music, clapping, and cheering.
He also took any opportunity he could to steal his own seat, while grabbing peanuts from the guys behind us and snacking on cracker jack all night.
As far as the game goes it was a fun one and a victory of the Reds, including a three run home run by Joey Votto and a 10th inning squeeze bunt by pinch-hitter Wilson Valdez to drive in Miguel Cairo for the 6-5 win!
