Hello everyone. First, I'd like to apologize if you guys feel that this is posted in the wrong forum. I just wanted to make sure everyone could see it. Anyway, I'm obviously new to Reds Zone, if the post count didn't already give that away, haha. I worked as a member of the Reds Ground Crew for the past three seasons. I must say, it was an awesome experience, especially being that I'm a lifelong Reds fan. I graduated from Miami Univ. of Ohio in 2003. I took the job with the Reds as a method of getting my "foot in the door", in an attempt to work toward a full time career in professional sports. At the end of my first season, I began working for WCPO-tv Channel 9 also...another opportunity to build my resume.
I am now employed by MLB and MLB.com and work with the Pittsburgh Pirates. It's a job payed by MLB directly out of NYC, but with the Pirates. Hopefully that makes sense. So, my resume building continues and I'm extremely anxious for baseball to begin. Unfortunately, I wont be sitting in the dugout for each and every Red's home game, but I'll be working toward that full time career in MLB.
So, that's my introduction. I'll share some of the pictures that I took during my experience with the Reds.
Here is a picture of Griffey heading out to center to play defense. This also gives a perspective of the view from where the grounds crew stands.
Arroyo and Ross during the game.
Hatteberg, Kearns, and LaRue during the game.
Dunn aka Big Donkey...after either hitting a HR or striking out, haha.
Brandon Phillips. The team calls him "B Real".
Dunn going to play Defense.
Me and Dunn. That was my first season.
Me and the Mayor.
I'm gonna upload some more...
