CINCINNATI - Before the Cincinnati Reds take on the San Francisco Giants Tuesday evening at the Great American Ball Park, Hall of Famer Tom Browning will throw out the honorary first pitch for Game 3 of the NLDS.

Browning, also referred to as "Mr. Perfect", will throw the first pitch around 5:30, just before the game's first pitch at 5:37 p.m.

Browning was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2006. He famously pitched a perfect game on Sept. 6, 1988, and held the title as the Reds' most recent no-hitter until Homer Bailey's on Sept. 28.

Other events for Tuesday's game include Nick Lachey singing the National Anthem, and local musician Kathy Wade will lead "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.

All fans will receive "Let's Go Reds" rally towels for when the Reds are at plate.

Below is a list of more events taking place Tuesday in preparation for Game 3.

  • Budweiser Clydesdales will be around for pre-game festivities.
  • US Army infantryman Kevin Sauriol will deliver the official game ball.
  • US Army Sergeant First Class Jeremiah Minor will be honored as Cincinnati Bell Hometown Hero of the game.
  • Funky G & the Groover Machine will perform in the Fan Zone before the game.
