As summer approaches I felt it appropriate to talk about one of my favorite pastimes, baseball. Baseball is definitely my biggest ongoing hobby throughout my life. From the time I started playing tee ball up until playing softball in my late twenties, baseball has been a constant for me throughout the years.
As a kid and still as an adult I love going to Reds games. Growing up a Ken Griffey Jr. fan I was definitely excited to see him come to the Reds organization. I have been fortunate enough to see live some of the most exciting games the Reds have played in – from walk off homeruns to playoff games to Opening Day.
There’s a different mood when it comes to baseball in the city of Cincinnati, and the fans can’t get enough of it. Opening Day here is more of a holiday or celebration than it is just the start of the baseball season. It is common for people to take off work, ditch class, or just call in sick to go down to partake in our Opening Day Parade. If you’ve never been you definitely need to check it out sometime soon.
