It may be hard for some to imagine, but winter must be officially over, because Cincinnati’'s unofficial holiday, Opening Day, is finally here, as the Reds welcome the Pirates to Great American Ballpark Monday for their first game of the season. Greg Rhodes, Cincinnati Reds team historian; sports writer John Erardi; and, WVXU'’s Howard Wilkinson join us to size up this year’'s Reds, and take a look at the Findlay Market Parade and other opening day celebrations.

Reds fans lined up at Fountain Square today for an All Star Game promotion.  And with this warmer weather, they're anticipating baseball season, which begins four weeks from today with the Reds' Opening Day.

When the Cincinnati Reds return from spring training in Arizona, they should find new signs at Great American Ball Park. 

The three neon signs, above the scoreboard, over the main gates, and on the southwest corner of the outside, will be replaced with LED lighting. 

Normally, the team and Hamilton County would be responsible for the $1 million to $2 million cost, but Scott Beeken with Great American Insurance Group says it will pay.

Great American Ball Park is getting some new seats in time for the 2015 All Star Game.

About five years after the stadium was built, the Reds noticed some of the seats were breaking. The company that made them fixed some. A competing vender quoted $5 million to fix everything.

Instead, Hamilton County Stadium Director Joe Feldkamp says he's found two local companies that will do the job for less, and support another county initiative in the process.

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 Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum's showcase exhibit for 2013 will feature a collection of autographs from more than 1,500 Red players - nearly every player who has worn the Reds uniform since 1920.

"Signature Reds: A Century of Reds Autographs" opens to the public at 10 a.m Saturday at the Hall of Fame and Museum at Great American Ball Park, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way.
