A luncheon was held Wednesday afternoon to mark the beginning of the Reds Kid Glove Games program.
Honorary chairperson Nick Lachey hosted the luncheon that was held at the Diamond Club at Great American Ballpark. The Kids Glove program provides area youth leagues with equipment by selling Reds tickets.
Nick Lachey, who used to play in little league, said at the luncheon, "I think it's just so important that we're able to keep our youth invested in sports and team sports and especially baseball. It's such a great baseball town and I think it's really important that we as a community continue to remember that and continue to promote that with our young people."
More than $8 million has been raised in the 62 year history of the kid glove program.
