Reds caravan kicks off Thursday


The 2013 Reds Caravan kicks off Thursday, Jan. 24 and is scheduled to make 15 fan stops in four states covering more than 2,800 miles over four days.

The Caravan consists of three separate tours traveling simultaneously through Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia and provides fans with the opportunity to interact with current and former players, broadcasters and members of the Reds front office staff. At each fan stop, the group will field questions from fans and sign autographs while time allows.

New for 2013: The Columbus, Ohio stop will be at Nationwide Arena on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 10 am to 12:30 pm. The Caravan will be set up on the Bud Light Terrace, located inside the south side of the arena on the Main Concourse. Doors will open at 9 am.
