Average attendance in Major League Baseball is down for the fourth consecutive year, the Associated Press reported on May 30.
While there has been no announcement or official affirmation, it seems clear that Jose Iglesias is now the everyday shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds.
The Reds hope to make it 2-0 this season wearing their nostalgic throwback uniforms. In the 4:10 p.m. Eastern time start of game three of a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Great American Ball Park, the Reds will wear the team's road uniform from 1911.
There have been a lot of words spoken and written about the desire of Reds fans to have Nick Senzel, the organization's top prospect, finally join the team. He's not going to have to wait long to play. He's in the starting lineup in center field -- where most of Redleg Nation hopes he remains on a regular basis for the foreseeable future.
