The baseball season is fully underway and the Cincinnati Reds are pulling together a new club called “Club Red.” This is the first year that the Reds are offering this club for those 13-15 years old. This club is designed to sort of offer a follow-up to the other club called “Reds Heads”, which is offered to kids ages 3-14. Corey Hawthorne, who is the Senior Manager of Consumer Clubs and Player Relations, said, “We just want to kind of keep the fan base of these kids with this club.”
Packages for the club start at just $40. With that, you get your choice of five Reds ticket vouchers for the select Club Red games. It can either be five tickets to five different games, or, the vouchers could be used all at one game. This package comes with many other perks as well. Along with entrance into the game, the tickets also come with loaded credits that can be used at the concession stand, or even on Reds merchandise at Great American Ball Park.
A couple of the other perks this package includes are a free one-day admission to The Beach Waterpark and a free half hour of jump time at SkyZone, the indoor trampoline park. After hitting The Beach Waterpark, be sure to go to Frisch’s Big Boy and get your free Hot Fudge Cake. The next day, you can go to any one of the six Cincinnati Recreation Commission’s Golf Courses for a free range bucket, or a free greens fee.
Along with everything listed already, you will receive special seating in the View Level Line at the Club Red games, along with scoreboard recognition during the games. All of this can be yours for only $40. To sign up, visit reds.com/ClubRed, or visit the fan club booth behind Section 120 at the ballpark. Or click this link for more details.
We had heard about this club while attending journalism day down at the ball park. A lot of things happen on this day. They invite two students and the teacher from journalism classes around the area to find out more about jobs at the stadium. We talked to Rob Butcher, the director of media relations.
Rob talked to us about the hiring process and what he does. He also talked about how to get started in the sports business.
We also got to watch batting practice and see the media room. The media rooms were cool and all of the writers get to sit in the press box for each game.
It was a pretty cool day that ended even better when the Reds beat the first place Brewers 8-3.
