CINCINNATI -- Are you planning on roughing out the heat at the Reds game today? Remember how to stay cool at Great American Ball Park.
Wednesday will be hot and humid, with temperatures in the low-90s and a heat index in the high 90s.
The Reds vs. Cubs game starts at 12:35 p.m. and they recommend helpful tips for fans on how to stay cool and safe at GABP:
• Fans will be permitted to bring opened bottles of water into the ballpark. (Unopened bottles of water and soft-sided coolers smaller than 16x16x8 are always permitted.)
• “Cool rooms” will be in operation with TVs so fans can watch the game. Please see a Reds staff member for an escort to a cool room.
• Cool water vapor misting stations are setup near sections 106, 130, 517 and under the PNC Power Stacks in center field.
• Sun screen lotion will be available free at TriHealth first aid stations.
• Fans should keep hydrated and drink plenty of fluids (preferably water) before and during the game.
• Extra care should be taken when exposing infants and elderly fans to these conditions as they are much more susceptible to heat-related illnesses.
• Any fans feeling weak or sick should let a Reds staff member know and medical aid will be summoned.
• Wheelchair assistance is always available. Please see a Reds staff member.
Paramedics and ambulance crews are on site at every game.
Also remember: the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum and Reds Tem Shops are all air conditioned. Stop into one of them to escape the heat.
