Opening Day festivities for the Cincinnati Reds have been moved from Good Friday to the day before.

The Reds will play the Miami Marlins at 4:10 p.m. at Great American Ball Park on Thursday, April 5.

The original 2012 schedule released in September had Opening Day on Friday, April 6, which created controversy because April 6 is Good Friday.

I'll still go, but now only taking a half day off from work. If it was still Friday I would have taken the whole day off. Would had preferred having the parade on Thursday and Opening Day on Friday...

I don't like this. I live 3 hours away and would love to go to OD and again the next night. I don't care for an off day on day 2.
