Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - Great American Ballpark has been open 10 years but will experience a first this spring - college baseball.
As part of a partnership between the Reds and the University of Cincinnati, the Bearcats baseball team will play a home game on the Reds home field. On April 6th the Reds take on the Washington Nationals at 1:10pm and 30 minutes after that game ends, UC will take on Louisville.
"The University of Cincinnati and University of Louisville
are two fine universities representing Reds Country and it's important to our
organization that we foster baseball at all levels including supporting local
colleges," said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer. "We are proud to
be hosting UC and UofL for the first ever college game at Great American Ball
"This is another example of the commitment by Reds ownership
to the greater Cincinnati community," said Brian Cleary, UC baseball head
coach. "Our players are excited about the opportunity to play a heated rival in
a major-league venue. This is a significant event in the development of UC
baseball as we will have an opportunity to introduce our program and college
baseball to an even greater number of people. I know that all associated with
this game are anxious to play in front of as many baseball fans as possible.
Our community can make this a game that is noticed across the nation."
A ticket to the Reds game is good for the UC game as well.
