We want to express our deep gratitude for the outpouring of support we received during our recent fundraiser. The names of those who met target amounts are now displayed in the right sidebar. The designation BTB stands for “back-to-back” which means it is the second year for that donor to make the RN Hall of Fame. We understand that not everyone is in a position to contribute that much. Donations of every level were appreciated.

We continue to be amazed at the reach of Redleg Nation. Our readership is, indeed, national in breadth. Twenty-three states were represented by loyal nation members who donated or bought merchandise. Here’s the list: AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, IA, IL, IN, KY, MD, NC, NE, NJ, NY, OH, OR, PA, TN, SC, TX, VA and WV!

If you missed the official fundraising period but want to support Redleg Nation, we’ll leave the DONATE button in the sidebar. And, of course, you can buy discounted tickets to Reds games, home and away, through TiqIQ. Connect through the image in the sidebar and Redleg Nation receives a percentage of your purchase.

The Redleg Nation shirts and hats were ordered from our supplier today. Our target shipping date is May 13.

** Watch for a special announcement tonight at 7 p.m.
