Baseball Summer. Cincinnati

 

DSCN8032

The taxpayers of the area have made an excellent investment in a new stadium. Opened in 2003, and built at a cost of $320 million, it is most certainly a great replacement of their old park.

They even have a way cool mascot. I like his moustache!

This stadium had a huge variety of local beers for sale. That is something you do not find in most parks. Here, there was a wonderful old lady who watched me try to make my choice. She asked me "do you like Bourbon?" When I said yes, she suggested a Bourbon flavored beer "for sipping". It was the best beer I had all summer.

Centerfield is The Great American Ballpark is dominated by this huge replica of a Mississippi river boat. Inside is of course a bar. But the important thing is that when the Reds hit a home run, the smoke stacks let out fireworks. A real crowd pleaser, and a tradition dating back years to the old River Front Stadium.

I forget which pitcher started this game, but as any Baseball fan can tell you, not such a great start! Stats, gotta love 'em.
