Reds Game with the Cincinnati Ski Club (20 September 2002)- It is a baseball game day with the Cincinnati ski club. The weather is a nice sunny day. The club had good seats, but a couple of people in the club had gotten some seats right behind the Red's dugout. They swapped tickets with us and we went down to enjoy. Below is where we were...
And then the view from where we moved to. We could see Marty and Joe in the 700WLW box. Very cool.
Last Reds Game in Cinergy Ballpark (22 September 2002)- It is the end of the season and the end of Cinergy Ballpark. On the same weekend is Octoberfest in Zinzinnati. We stop by the Beer tent to have a beer before going down to the game. They are selling Ludwig beer. Named after King Ludwig of Bavaria. He built Schloss Neuschwanstein, (see summer 2002 page 1)
On to the Ballpark. The players all great Marge Schott and the Lindner execs.
Joe Nuxhall throws out the first pitch of the final game.
