The Reds are calling on two former team captains to throw out the ceremonial first pitch on opening day.  In a release, the team says David Concepción and Barry Larkin will throw out simultaneous first pitches before the Reds take on the Cardinals on March 31st  at Great American Ball Park.  

Concepción was named captain in 1983 and Larkin got the title before the 1997 season.

Concepción also will serve as the grand marshal of the 95th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, which begins at noon before the 4:10 game.

Maybe you consider yourself the greatest Cincinnati Reds fan in the world. Maybe you have a friend or family member so devoted to the Redlegs that you would hang that moniker on them.


Well, the world is a big place.


It’s a subjective title, but one name that has to be considered is that of Carlos Moreno Lopez, who lives about 4,400 miles away from Great American Ball Park in Barcelona, Spain.

The Reds are retiring Barry Larkin's uniform number a week from tomorrow and leading up to that they've launched a series of celebrations called the "11 Days of Larkin."

The National Hall of Famer's #11 will be retired August 25th. The events that day will feature a block party at The Banks starting at 1 p.m. and a post-game performance by Larkin's daughter Cymber, who's an international recording artist.
