    Redsfest 2010

    Here we are only 23 days away from Redsfest. I'm looking forward to it. It's a great event, I've been the last two years and have enjoyed it very much. If you have a chance to go, do it. Not only do you have a great chance at getting autographs and pics of your favorite player, but they also have great merchandise available, plus this year they will be celebrating the Reds 2010 NL Central Championship and there will be a tribute to Sparky Anderson.

    The Reds are doing something new this year. Buy a Redsfest ticket and you get a free view level ticket for the April 15 game vs. Pirates. That's a great deal, IMO.

    Anyway, here is the initial list of players who will be attending Redsfest.

    Alonso, Yonder
    Arroyo, Bronson
    Berry, Mark
    Billingham, Jack
    Borbon, Pedro
    Brantley, Jeff
    Bray, Bill
    Brennaman, Marty
    Brennaman, Thom
    Browning, Tom
    Cardenas, Leo
    Carroll, Clay
    Chapman, Aroldis
    Cozart, Zack
    Davis, Eric
    Flynn, Doug
    Foster, George
    Frazier, Todd
    Gomes, Jonny
    Granger, Wayne
    Hamilton, Billy
    Hanigan, Ryan
    Harmon, Chuck
    Heisey, Chris
    Helms, Tommy
    Horst, Jeremy
    Jacoby, Brook
    Joseph, Donnie
    Kelch, Jim
    Klinker, Matt
    Leake, Mike
    Lynch, Jerry
    Maloney, Jim
    Masset, Nick
    May, Lee
    Mesoraco, Devin
    Oester, Ron
    Ondrusek, Logan
    O'Toole, Jim
    Phillips, Brandon
    Power, Ted
    Price, Bryan
    Smith Jordan
    Valaika, Chris

    That's just the initial list so don't read into Bruce or Votto not being on there. The Reds have already said that every player under contract is expected to be there.

    I've never gone before and I'm not sure why but I plan on going on Saturday this year. Really looking forward to it.

    I'm not a Redsfester, but nice to see them bringing Billy Hamilton into the fold.

    Yep. His autograph should be easy to get since a lot of people probably haven't heard of him. I have a feeling 2-3 years from now he won't be such an unknown.

    I've gone to Redsfest the last four years and I'm really looking forward to this year's event since we have a lot to celebrate and remember from this year. I also volunteered last year which was really cool and I'm doing that again although just for Saturday this time (it works better for my schedule). It should be a really fun event and just FYI, Better Off Red's Jamie Ramsey is going to have his own booth there this year which should be a total hoot.

    Re: Redsfest 2010

    Of all the years, this one looks like the best of all to go. Especially if the claim holds true that everyone under contract is expected to show. In addition to Bruce and Votto, still a lot of names missing...Cueto, Volquez, Rolen, Stubbs, Janish, Bailey, Francisco etc.

    From what I remember of the past, it's always seemed more difficult to get the Latin players to come. The fact that Chapman is going is sick!!

    I've been the last two years and most of the Latin guys were there. Cueto, Volquez, Viola, Cordero (last year). Juan Francisco was supposed to be there last year but ended up not making it.

    Re: Redsfest 2010

    IIRC, the only two major players who weren't there at some point last year were Homer Bailey and Paul Janish due to Paul's wedding falling sometime during that same week. I don't remember if Aaron Harang was there or not but for some reason, I think he did attend at some point last year. I remember seeing just about everyone else on the major league roster at some point during the weekend. Edinson was a total trip during the one photo session time that I got a picture with him, Pedro Viola, and Matt Maloney, LOL

    Volquez is a great dude. I've met him twice now and both times he came off as a great guy. I don't think I've ever seen him without a huge smile on his face.

    Thanks for the update, OBM. Any idea on when they will announce which players are coming on which day? Also, I have attended in years past and remember similar sized crowds both day. Does anyone else remember from experience if there will be a lighter crowd one day or another? Thanks.

    The majority of the players are there for both days. I think only a couple of them were there for only one day last year.

    Scott Rolen was only there on Friday night and I think a couple of guys were only there on Saturday but most guys are usually there both days. Glad to see more confirmations from the players.

    From my experience last year, I think Saturday morning and afternoon seemed much more crowded than Friday night, but when I saw the final numbers it was pretty close between both days. I imagine both days will be very busy this year.

    I've never seen it as crowded as it was on Friday night last year.

    I still had a great time though.
