This should be a really fun event; it’s the 2012 Reds vs. Futures game:

Join us to kick off a new season of Reds baseball like never before! In this special exhibition game, Reds fans will have the chance to see their favorite Reds of today match up against the future Reds stars of tomorrow. How will Minor League Player of the Year Billy Hamilton stack up against Mat Latos? What about top pitching prospect Daniel Corcino taking the mound to face Joey Votto? It’s going to be a matchup all Reds fans will want to see.

PLUS, fans will have the opportunity to enjoy plenty of fun activities throughout the evening, including many features you won’t see during regular season games!

I’m kind of a sucker for stuff like this. It should be a pretty laid back, fun evening of baseball. There are different prices for different seats but, heck, you can get a bleacher seat for five bucks. You can’t beat that.

Plus, Redleg Nation Spotlight Player Tucker Barnhart will be playing in the game. If nothing else, we need to come out to support Tucker.

Anyone planning to go?
