Take me out to the ballllllpark!! Take me out to the game…

A holiday unto itself for Tri-Staters, Opening Day marks the start of the Cincinnati Reds baseball season & the end of winter doldrums. On Monday, April 5th, the Reds will be facing off against the St. Louis Cardinals. With a great weather forecast & a full-day of events planned, it may be a wee bit hard to keep your own head in the game–the college game, that is! But, you can catch a game on Sunday, April 25th for just 5 BUCKS when Miami University heads to the ballpark to watch the Reds take on the San Diego Padres. Just stop by 122 Schwarm to sign up and pay cash/check.

Can’t make that day either? Check out the complete schedule & get current news on the Cincinnati Reds website, or keep track of all of your favorite local sports by checking out (also includes prolific Reds coverage).
