The Cincinnati Reds will play their last spring training game in Cincinnati at Great American Ball Park on April 3 as part of a Spring Showcase, giving fans the opportunity to get a first look at the 2012 Reds and see the top players from the organization’s minor league affiliates.

Reds versus Futures game. That should be fun.

That's really a good idea. That would be a lot of fun to see.

What would your "Futures" team lineup look like?

SS Hamilton
2B H.Rodriguez (or Gregorius)
3B Vidal
1B Soto
LF Frazier (assuming he's not on OD roster, otherwise Phipps or Puckett)
RF Y.Rodriguez
CF LaMarre
C Barnhart
P Corcino (with Sulbaran relieving)

I have a man crush on Sulbaran, so I'd have him starting with Corcino in the pen. Sulbaran has more experience. WBC and all.

Other than that.. I think the futures team could actually win.

Futures team won the Carolina game a few years ago.

Anyone else get tickets yet? I got 2 in section 125 (scout seats behind home, just above Diamond and Scout Box sections). Anyone know what row section 125 starts in, if not row 1?

Looking forward to the game. Should be a nice lead in to Opening Day and a chance to see some future Reds stars.

I am in section 115. The one thing that bugged me was the inability to pick a section beyond the "price range" you wanted. I was hoping to get behind the first base dugout, but after several attempts that kept placing me in section 126, I finally landed in 115 which is doable for what I wanted despite being behind the third base dugout.

ETR, I could be wrong, but I believe that the "rows" begin with Row A from the diamond seats and work their way up from there all around the lower level.

Thanks.

I'm really tempted to get club seats because I'm very confident I can eat $18 worth of food haha...

I'm going to the game (got tickets in section 115, row G earlier this morning) and I cannot wait to get back to GABP this season. This sounds like it's going to be a fun night! :D

Have to support the farm! Decked out in Dragons gear: t-shirt, hoodie, hat, and earrings lounging in the club! :)

Corcino looking like Mario Soto, striking out Bruce and Heisey to end the 2nd.

The game last night was a lot of fun aside from the sinus infection I'm battling right now which made me feel miserable by about the sixth inning. Mom and I had fun watching batting practice though and the interviews they did on the field. I tweeted a bunch of pictures last night (LOVE my new phone! This was the first time I'd used it at GABP) and took a bunch more on my actual camera which I'll go through when I feel a bit better. I hope they do something like this again because it was pretty fun. The Futures guys were a riot with how excited they kept getting every time they did something good, LOL :laugh:

Doug-I have no idea if I saw you or not there but I hope you had fun! :)

BTW-This one lady sitting to my left and behind me was a total tool for almost the entire game. She was a Dragons booster and kept cheering obnoxiously for the Dragons guys (wonder if half of them will even be part of that team this year...I think most of them should be moving up a level). I think she forgot the one important thing about this game last night: ALL these guys are in the REDS organization. They're really all on the same team and this game meant total squat to most of them. It was an exhibition game lady...I really wanted her to take a chill pill. That was a bit annoying. :thumbdown:

You should watch what you say. Kitty Duran posts here. I don't think she'll like you talking about her like that. ;)

The catcalls for Joey Votto started ALREADY in our section (221) last night. Now that he's signing the mega deal, every out he makes will be met with yells of "way to earn your money, Votto!"

It's only been (less than) one game, that doesn't even count, and I'm already fed up with that.

You had to be sitting right in front of me and to the left..... because I know the lady you were talking about. Were you wearing a gray hat?

Yes, I was wearing a grey hat, my hair was down, and I also had on my red Joey Votto MVP t-shirt. I still pretty much look like the picture in my avatar although my hair is longer now. Bummed I didn't get to meet you!

We should have planned better. You were a row in front of me and two or three seats to my left.
