CINCINNATI - The Reds are back in the Queen City this weekend and so is the heat.

Friday's game against the Pirates doesn't start until 7 p.m. but the heat will linger well into the night.

Courtesy cups of water and ice will be available at all concession stands and during the heat emergency fans are permitted to bring opened bottles of water into the ballpark.

Three air-conditioned "cool rooms" are in operation with televisions so fans can watch the game while staying cool. You're asked to see a Reds staff member to be escorted to a "cool room."

Cool water vapor misting stations are also setup near sections 106, 130, 517 and under the PNC power stacks in center field.

Sunscreen lotion will be available at any of the first aid stations and fans should keep hydrated and drink plenty of fluids before and during the game.

If fans feel weak or sick, they are asked to immediately let a Reds staff member know and medical aid will be called.
