The Great American Ball Park is a great place to watch a game.  The Great American Ballpark is one of the best parks in the majors for scenery outside the yard. You get a close personal view of the Ohio River. The park also features the ‘Cincinnati Reds Hall Of Fame” that is directly adjacent to the park—great place to check out the 1st Major League Baseball Club. Particularly if you are a Pete Rose fan, you have to visit this Museum. Pete Rose is nowhere to be found at Great American because of his lifetime ban—but his career is nicely chronicled inside the doors of the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame.

The concourses at Great American are spacious, clean and the workers there offer the nicest hospitality. There is not a bad seat in the place. Cincinnati’s fans are amongst the smartest in baseball.  They have 3 mascots still in use that walk the field in:‘Gapper,’ ‘Mr. Redlegs’ and of course ‘Rosie Red,’ a truly great experience for the kids. The fireworks display on Friday nights in the summer are incredible against the back drop of the Ohio River.

From guys who also did 30 Ball Parks in 30 Days: 

Brandon Phillips will  be playing at GABP through 2017 if he is not traded.  The fans of Cincy love "Dat Dude BP"

The Cincinnati Reds won the 2012 Central Divison with an 97-65 record. The Cincinnati Reds lost Three game to Two, to the eventual 2012 World Series champs San Franciso Giants in the National League Divison series after holding a commanding lead. The 2013 Cincinnati Reds will look very much the same on the field as they did in 2012. Joey Votto 1st .337/14/56, Brandon Phillips 2nd .281/18/77, Cozart SS .246/5/35, Frazier 3rd .273/19/67, Hanigan C .274/2/24, Bruce RF .252/34/99, The Reds have added Shin-Soo Choo was traded from the Cleveland Indians for Drew Stubbs.

Choo Batted .283/16/67, and Ryan Ludwick is a free agent, I expect Chris Heisey to take his place in the outfield ( .265/7/31). The Cincinnati Reds ranked 10th in attendance ( 2,347,251) in the National League. The spilts on the home/away for the 2012 Cincinnati Reds are 50-31 Home and the Reds were 47-34 on the road. The first half of the 2012 season saw the Reds at an 47-38 record, while the second half of the season the Reds had an 50-27 record.

*** only put the teams once if the Reds play more than one time ***

The Reds are amongst the early favorites with Bookmakers for winning the World Series in 2013.  They will look for their 1st title since 1990 next season.

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker
