Reds Caravan is here Saturday


The Cincinnati Reds Winter Caravan has announced that it will be stopping in Switzerland County. This will be the third consecutive year that the caravan has made a stop here.

The caravan is expected to make its stop here this Saturday, January 28th. The stop will be at the Historic Hoosier Theater in Vevay; and this year the stop will be in the evening, and is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

According to the Cincinnati Reds website, the Switzerland County stop will be a part of the Western leg of the Caravan.

Tentatively scheduled to be a part of the Western leg of the Caravan are: broadcaster Jim Kelch; former pitcher and current broadcaster Jeff Brantley; manager Dusty Baker; players Todd Frazier and Billy Hamilton; and “Rosie Red”.

The western leg begins today (Thursday), in Hamilton, Ohio; then tomorrow (Friday), goes to Muncie, Indiana, and then to Indianapolis. This Saturday, the day begins in Bloomington, Indiana before coming here; and the caravan then wraps up on Sunday, at Slugger Field in Louisville.

At each stop, the group will field questions from fans and sign autographs. Due to time constraints, autograph sessions may not be able to satisfy all fans in attendance. Sales representatives will be on hand to discuss season tickets and group sales, while the Reds Hall of Fame, the Reds Community Fund and Cincinnati USA Regional Tourism Network attended selected stops.

The website also reports that two tickets for the Reds opening day game against the Miami Marlins on Thursday, April 5th will be raffled off.
