CINCINNATI - As the Reds prepare for a weekend against the Rockies there are a number of opportunities to walk away with giveaways from the game.
They were on a six-game winning streak, and the only thing hotter than the Reds this weekend will be the record-breaking temperatures.
As the Reds prepare for a Memorial Day weekend against the Colorado Rockies, the team is offering several ways to keep you cool at the ballpark.
The team is providing courtesy cups of ice at concession stands, and fans are able to bring opened bottles of water into the ballpark this weekend only. Usually, only unopened bottles of water are permitted.
"Cool rooms" will be open for fans. TVs will be in the "cool rooms" so you can watch the game while cooling off. Misting stations are also being set up near sections 106, 130, 517, and under the PNC Power Stacks in center field.
The Reds are also offering free sun screen lotion at the TriHealth first aid stations.
They're asking all fans to drink plenty of water and keep hydrated before and during the game.
There are also a number of opportunities to walk away with giveaways from the games this holiday weekend.
From May 25 to May 27 you can take advantage of a four for $48 deal. When you purchase four view level tickets, you'll receive four free Reds caps featuring the stars and stripes in honor of Memorial Day weekend.
On Friday night, there will be post-game fireworks.
On Saturday, the first 20,000 fans to the 7:15 game will receive a Scott Rolen Rawlings Gold Glove Replica Trophy. The Cincinnati Zoo's Bald Eagle, "Sam", will be performing a flight from the roof of the Cincinnati Bell Technology Pavilion in center field to the pitcher's mound during the singing of the National Anthem.
This Sunday, the first 8,000 kids 14 and younger walk away with kids binoculars. Fans of all ages will also be able to run the bases after the game.
