    I think gates open 2 hrs before the game. Home team takes BP first.

    Correct.

    Cheer for the Reds.

    1) I believe the gates now open two hours before the game. Last year it was 1:30 before the game but if IIRC, Castellini changed it to two hours before the game this year.

    2) The Reds always take BP first

    3) Correct. 3B line is the away dugout.

    4) Grab some coneys. Best food you will ever eat. And visit the Reds Hall of Fame. It's awesome to go in check out all the history and such.

    I was going to recommend the Hall of Fame as well, went there last week and I really enjoyed it.

    I know. That's why I said that. Check out the HOF too if you have time - should take 1-2 hours.

    If you buy a hot dog, get it from the vendor walking the aisles, they are better IMO, and cheaper.

    Oh, and convert while you are there, to being a Reds fan.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I bought a 30 pack from the Castle last night. The wife will only eat a couple of them, so I'll get to eat these things for a few days all by myself. Yum
