    August 25th Game vs Marlins: Concepcion's Number Retired

    Who all is planning on going down for the Saturday game?

    I thought I'd start this thread to see if a group would like to meet up prior to (and maybe after) the game.

    Concepcion's ceremoney is prior to the game and is scheduled for 6:30 PM. They are also giving out a Concepcion retirement jersey.

    I'm going to take my video camera down. I guess, according to MLB, you can't tape "game activity", but I don't think his ceremony would fall under that category. We'll see.

    I'm definitely going to be there. I come from a family of Davey Concepcion fans, so there will be about 20-25 of us in the bleachers.

    I'll be there. Glad you reminded me of the pregame ceremony time. I can't believe I wasn't calculating that into my arrival time in town. I would have been very upset about driving there and missing it.

    I hope to be there... I'm only 22, so I wasn't around to appreciate his greatness, but I'm well aware of what he meant to this franchise, and hopefully I can be there for a great moment in an otherwise dreary season (and including the two spring training games I went to, the Reds are 1-7 in games I've attended. I need to start improving upon that sooner or later...)

    I'm sure a lot of people will want to be a part of that day to honor Davey. It'd be nice if the season was going better to make it even more special, but it's great anytime you have a chance to see a legend get honored for all that he accomplished and contributed.

    I was looking at the schedule and it looks like the next day is this year's team baseball card set giveaway too, so that might make a good weekend to head down and come away with some cool stuff.

    By the way for anyone that is not going to the game FSN is starting their pregame a half hour early that night so they can show Concepcion's retirement ceremony. So they will do their regular pregame at 6 and then show the retirement ceremony at 6:30.

    It's about time.

    I think they should pull it out of a big dryer during the ceremony.

    Only if Davey is actually wearing it.

    I'll be there!

    OK. It looks like those that want to meet before the game will be getting together at Arnies over in Newport.

    I'm probably going to try and be there between 4-4:30.

    If anyone has any questions, give me a PM.

    GAC....I'm sure Ron Oester and John Vukovich will be very appreciative.
    Concepcion might appreciate #13 a bit more

    I am thoroughly embarassed. I knew he was #13. Duh!

    I can't believe I did that.... well, yes I can.

    I can't edit the above, but believe me - I fixed the original.

    Could you see the reaction I would have gotten if I had taken that to the game on Saturday?

    The Reds will be the first MLB club to retire the number 13.
    Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
