The second annual Perfect Pitch concert, scheduled for Sunday, July 1 at the Madison Theater in Covington, Kentucky, has been canceled.
Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo, the featured performer at the concert, said, ďThe timing isnít good right now. My body is a little banged up, and Iím trying to help us win baseball games.Ē
Arroyo is slated to perform at Kahnís Redsfest, presented by Great American Insurance, benefiting the Reds Community Fund. The event returns to the Duke Energy Center downtown December 7-8.
The Perfect Pitch concert was slated to feature Arroyo, Chad Perrone and Screaming Mimes. It was to be hosted by local comedian Josh Sneed.
At a May 27 concert downtown, Arroyo helped generate more than $6,000 in charitable proceeds that benefited the Reds Community Fund and Homes for our Troops program. Arroyo is also donating $100 for each strikeout this season to Homes for our Troops, an organization that provides homes at no cost to injured or disabled servicemen and servicewomen and their immediate families.
Fans who purchased tickets to the Perfect Pitch concert will receive a full refund and 2 tickets to a 2007 Reds home game.
