The Reds’ Caravan (details) takes place this weekend (Jan. 23-26). We’re looking for members of the Nation to report on these events.
Here’s how it works. If you attend one of the caravan stops, you write up a report about it – what you saw, what was said, your experience directly interacting with the Reds, maybe some pictures etc., whatever you want. You email your report to me as soon as you get a chance, within 24 hours preferably. I’ll lightly edit if necessary and then post it on the front page of the site.
Here is the breakdown of the different Reds Caravan legs:
The North tour will travel through the Ohio cities of Columbus, Lima, Dayton and Hamilton. Featured will be outfielder Billy Hamilton, Reds Hall of Famer Tom Browning, broadcasters Jim Kelch and Jeff Brantley, Minor League outfielder Jesse Winker and vice president of baseball operations Dick Williams.
For the South tour, which will travel through Louisville, Bowling Green and Lexington in Kentucky and Nashville, the headliners are general manager Walt Jocketty, starting pitcher Mat Latos (Thursday only), reliever Sam LeCure (Friday through Sunday), catcher Corky Miller, Minor League outfielderRyan LaMarre and chief operating officer Phil Castellini.
