Diamondbacker Posted April 9, 2013 Share Posted April 9, 2013 I went to the Reds game last Friday against the Nationals. We went on my aunt's company night, and they had seats under the smokestacks in center field. We sat two rows behind the fence and had a great view of all the homeruns leaving the yard. My family and I got there just as the Reds were about to bat in the bottom of the first. As I walked around, I noticed five new things around the park. 1.) There are two Frisch's Big Boy Concession Stands which looked as if they were pretty successful. 2.) There are three rows of new seats over the visitor's bullpen. 3.) There is a giant neon Budweiser sign in the field concourse. I believe this is a league-wide development, as multiple ballparks like Toronto's Rogers Centre were also sporting the same sign. 4.) There are substantial price rises in many things around the ball park. For example, the Kroger Meal Deal went up from $7 to $9. 5.) The Reds Car Race and Mr. Red's Race have been combined into one. Other than that, it was a chilly but great night for baseball. With the Reds winning 15-0 against a "top" team in the NL, it was great. Plus, Shin Soo Choo threw me the ball he had been tossing to Jay Bruce before the 8th inning. It was my first ball caught. I ended up giving it to my little cousin who was sitting behind me and didn't have a chance to catch it. The Reds will be a top contender for the World Series this year. Choo is a great addition, and if they aren't plagued by injuries, they'll be fine. I will go even as far as to say that Heisey deserves a chance to challenge Ludwick (when he comes back) for the starting role. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
