At Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red, there’s a great photo gallery from a great event. Ã‚Â Sunday, theÃ‚Â Reds Ã‚Â hosted some kids from theÃ‚Â CincinnatiÃ‚Â Children’s HospitalÃ‚Â Medical Center for the game and a meet-and-greet with Reds players. Ã‚Â You can see how much this means on the faces of both the kids and the players. Ã‚Â Also, Bill Bray apparently signs autographs right-handed.
We never hear about it, but Reds players do a lot of this kind of work, at hospitals around the country. Ã‚Â Bray, Drew Stubbs, and Orlando Cabrera are among the fourteen “All-Star members” of the Athletes for Hope, an organization founded by Andre Agassi, Muhammad Ali, Lance Armstrong, and a bunch of other athletes, which helps athletes find Ã‚Â charitable and service opportunities. Ã‚Â Several other Reds and former Reds are “regular” members.
