CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Reds fans showed up for Opening Night and
waited in the pouring rain for hours hoping for the game to start.
Rain, rain, go away - at least for Opening Night. That's what thousands of fans said while waiting to see the first Reds
game of 2014 under the lights.
"We're going to wait it out as long as
we can until the first pitch and we've been waiting since the last playoff game
last year," said Christine Hawker.
But the rain wasn't all bad for some,
including nearby bars and restaurants.
"We're going to go grab a bite to eat
and then hopefully come back and watch a game," said Christina Wedding.
The game started after a three hour delay,
but fans enjoyed some of the Opening Night festivities in the meantime. Before
the game, players and coaches lined the red carpet to sign autographs and meet
"Especially with the twins, so exciting.
They were here last year for Opening Day in my belly and they're here this year
for Opening Night," said Nikki Seibert.
"They're encouraging the players to come
out and meet the people and say thank you for coming out says a lot about the
organization. They appreciate the fans," said Craig Stiens.
Lawrenceberg native and Olympic bronze
medalist Nick Goepper continued his post Sochi tour around the Tri-State at Great American Ball Park.
"It's still a surreal experience and I
can't wait to continue and keep skiing and coming back here and doing more for the
community. It's what keeps me going," said Goepper.
Olivia Nigel and her friends go to school
with Goepper's little brother. They couldn't wait to check out tonight's
festivities and get Nick's autograph.
"It's pretty cool, it's just awesome to
see him takeoff like this," said Nigel.
Even with rain in the forecast for the night,
that didn't keep the fans from braving the storm.
"Rain never stopped us before so it's
not going to stop us now. This is a good example of no matter what the fans are
going to be here and support their hometown team," said Deb Tschirhart.

award and Jay Bruce's Silver Slugger award will be rescheduled for another
