Tonight the San Diego Padres, Cincinnati Reds and Make-A-Wish Foundation hosted 16-year-old Garth Shanklin of Williamsburg, Ohio in Butler County. The Reds presented Garth with a jersey with his name on the back, autographed by the team, and he is scheduled to visit Thom and Chris in the booth during tonight’s telecast. The family plans on driving to the Grand Canyon later this weekend.
Seated here in the dugout at Petco Park is Garth’s family, from left to right, mother Pamela, Garth, brother Timmy and father David.
Garth also met with Reds 1B Joey Votto before the game.
