    I am full blown ignorant on this subject. Has Peter Frampton ever played the Anthem and/or thrown out the first pitch? Opening day or otherwise? I know he lives in Cincy.

    2011 Opening Day was pretty cool with the flyover, not sure if that will be done again, but its pretty awesome
    Pete Rose will be leaving the Montreal Expos to become player - manager for the Cincinnati Reds

    Rarely, if ever, does an Opening Day come and go without a flyover.

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).

    Pretty much all you need to know about Opening Day festivities here.

    Maybe I am hard to please but once again I am left feeling very underwhelmed. Joe Torre does have name recognition but hardly signifies "Opening Day in Cincinnati" to me. He managed Team USA? Sorry, but big "who cares" from me. I understand his wife is from Cincinnati but come on....

    And a fireman who nobody knows singing the anthem? Ugh. At least he has some sort of tie to the city.

    Again I acknowledge that I may be being a tad picky. At 4:10 next Monday baseball is back and that is all that matters.

    Considering sitting President's have been the guest of honor on Opening Day, I think you have a point. I'm sure Mayor Mallory would have come back for an encore.

    Eh. I do understand the thought by many that Opening Day in Cincinnati is a huge deal and we'd like at least some A-list locals to partake in the pregame activities but it really doesn't bother me to much.

    This year the flyover will utilize drones.
