A few quick announcements:

1. The Reds play their first away game tonight in Chicago. If you attend a Reds game on the road, we’d love to publish your account and pictures. Last year, in our Behind Enemy Baselines series, we posted reviews from St. Louis, San Francisco, San Diego, New York (Yankees and Mets), Milwaukee, Arizona, Cleveland and Washington D.C. If you’re interested in writing a review for the site, contact us at [email protected] Even if we’ve posted reports from that stadium before, go ahead and submit your review, every visit is different and viewpoint unique.

2. Don’t forget you can buy tickets for upcoming Reds games, including for away games, through our ticket aggregator partner, TiqIQ. Use their free service to find the cheapest tickets and you’ll be supporting Redleg Nation at the same time. If you buy tickets through them, let us know in the comments section of the game recap so we can thank you!

3. Welcome to our newest advertiser, the Louisville Bats, the Reds AAA affiliate!

4. We’re about to start our now-annual 2-week fundraiser and Redleg Nation merchandise sale. We’ll be selling 2015 t-shirts, polo shirts and baseball hats. We have several new t-shirt designs that we think you’ll like. If you have suggestions for merchandise you’d like to see us sell, please let us know by commenting in this thread. Thanks!

Go Reds, beat the Cubbies!
