are literally insufferable. The people running sound at the ballpark are impossibly bad at what they do.
This is beyond insufferable. I've never heard it in any other pro/college/high school arena/stadium/ball park anywhere, which says one thing: It's terrible. And I have no idea what it's saying ... it sounds like "A long fly ball" to me, but who knows? They've been playing it for years. Seriously, get some new music already.
And while they're at it, ditch the cheesy cartoon Reds Race and run the real mascots around the field or something - like in Washington, Milwaukee and elsewhere. The current Reds Race is an abomination compared to the classic of Riverfront Stadium with the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 baseball heads racing toward the finish line. Now we get Mr. Red, Mr. Redlegs and Rosie all running around the bases and, just before they hit third, Gapper appears with some shenanigans to tamper with the race. He'll throw out the hole in which two of them fall into, or he'll throw out a jar of marbles.
The problem is there are only three or four versions and that gets incredibly boring if you attend more than a game or two.
