I almost didn't go. It was a busy day and I almost said it wasn't worth it, but I'm glad I did. I got to talk to a Reds HOF'er a Golden Glover (George Grande would be proud), Marty and Chris and put up with Gapper (I attract weirdos for some reason). There wasn't much else going on--mostly kids with their parents wanting autographs, but worth the trip nonetheless. Sorry you didn't get to come.
I plan to go to Redsfest next year and bring my son. He's probably about your age. One of the biggest impressions of the day was how huge Lee Mays' hands are. Wow.
