Reds Hall of Famer Dave Concepción will be the Grand Marshal of the 95th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade.
The parade kicks off at noon on Monday, March 31.
Concepción was a nine-time All-Star and winner of five Gold Gloves during his 19 seasons with the Reds. He was inducted in the Reds Hall of Fame in 2000 and his jersey number, 13, was retired by the Reds in 2007.
The first pitch for the Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day game is 4:10 p.m.
Hamilton County Commissioners could take the first steps Wednesday toward balancing the stadium fund for the next five years.
The plan is much the same as last year, but involves a different bank and a three-year deal. Essentially the board would take out an insurance policy with PNC Bank to cover the bulk of the debt and fund what's left from county reserves.
All the Reds players who made up the Great Eight will be taking part in the dedication ceremonies for the new Joe Morgan statue at Great American Ball Park this weekend.
Reds Hall of Fame executive director Rick Walls says Morgan was one of the last players to join the famed starting eight on the Big Red Machine of the 1970's.
"Joe was one of the final pieces that came in '72 in the trade with Cesar Geronimo," said Walls. "So the last two starting members came in, that kind of solidified that group, and when that group of eight played together it was so special."
