A week ago today the Cincinnati Reds announced their caravan stops, as well as who would be coming along for each of the four legs of the tour. Today they added a few more attendees, with at least one for at least part of each leg of the tour.
New left-handed starting pitcher Alex Wood and broadcaster Brian Giesenschlag have been added to the Columbus, Ohio stop of the North Tour. They’ll join Sal Romano, Cody Reed, Jeff Piecoro, Buddy Bell, and Shawn Pender for the fun on January 17th at Polaris Fashion Place from 7-9pm. Minor Leaguer Brantley Bell has also been added to the North Tour. He will be at all of the stops (Columbus, Dayton, Lima, Hamilton, Florence).
Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan isn’t joining a specific tour, but he will take part in two different places between two different legs of the tour. Morgan is making an appearance at the Athens, Ohio stop as well as the Nashville, Tennessee stop. The Athens stop will be on January 17th at the Athens Community Center from 6:30pm-8:30pm. The next day, on January 18th Morgan will appear at the Nashville stop at CoolSprings Galleria from 5-7pm CST.
Like Joe Morgan, majority owner and CEO Bob Castellini will be joining multiple legs of the tour. He will be in both Athens and Nashville. He will also be at the Dayton, Ohio and Batesville, Indiana stops. That gives him one stop on each leg of the tour. The stop in Dayton will be on January 19th from 11am-2pm at the National Museum of the US Air Force. Later that day he will join up with the West Tourn in Batesville at the Southeastern Indiana YMCA from 4-6pm.
