CINCINNATI - The Hoxworth Blood Center is looking for donors to step up to the plate for Reds Week.
The center has teamed up with the Cincinnati Reds and the University of Cincinnati to hold a summer blood drive at Great American Ball Park.
The blood drive will run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday at the FOX Sports Ohio Champions Club at the ballpark.
All donors will receive a free, limited-edition Reds T-shirt and the first 700 donors will get two tickets to Tuesday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Anyone who wants to participate but can't make it to the event can donate at any Hoxworth neighborhood donor center through Saturday and still get a Reds T-shirt.
Donors must be at least 17 years old or 16 with signed parental consent and in good health. Hoxworth said people should eat a good meal and drink plenty of water within four hours before donating.
