Reds Announce Winter Caravan

Yesterday, the Reds announced their annual Winter Caravan event which brings the Reds players, coaches, and personalities to areas around Reds Country.  This is the semi-kickoff to the spring training season and eventually the regular year. 

CFT attended the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory stop last February and had a blast.  Pitcher Homer Bailey, CFT favorite Brandon Phillips, announcer Marty Brennaman, former Red Chris Sabo, and GM Wayne Krivsky were all in attendance.  Unfortunately, we forgot to bring something for the players to sign, so this year we will make it a point to do so.

Scheduled to appear in stops on the Northern Leg are Krivsky, second baseman Brandon Phillips, pitcher Todd Coffey, Reds Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Browning, Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman and Reds mascot Gapper.

The Southern Leg group includes Baker, outfielder Ryan Freel, Reds Minor League Player of the Year Jay Bruce, Reds broadcasters Thom Brennaman and Jeff Brantley, senior vice president of business operations Phil Castellini and Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs.
