Reds PA announcer Joe Zerhusen, Mr. Redlegs, Rosie and Gapper kept the crowd entertained with various events. A dozen doughnuts were devoured by this group.
Reds promotional events manager Zach Bonkowski (with mic) interviewed various fans and handed out prizes for Reds knowledge. Shown here is a confused fan trying to figure out which Reds coach is nicknamed “Porky.” The answer of course is Reds bullpen coach Juan Lopez.

Reds fan Dawn Duncan was also presented with a personalized jersey. She was second in line for Opening Day tickets. Those are tears of joy.
Sherry Strunk speaks with the media about her experience of waiting in line since Thursday morning for the opportunity to purchase Opening Day tickets.
