2012 Caravan revealed
I’ve gotten more questions asked about when Reds Caravan information would be revealed, where the stops were, etc…and I know Jamie Ramsey has gotten double the amount of questions. Well be curious no more, my friends…the club made its announcement on Tuesday.
On the Reds Caravan Southern tour are stops in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. It will feature Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman, second baseman Brandon Phillips, assistant general manager Bob Miller, broadcaster and former pitcher Chris Welsh, Reds Hall of Famer Lee May, minor league catcher Tucker Barnhart and mascot Gapper.
Also part of the Southern tour is a planned home visit to Great American Ball Park for the annual “Select-A-Seat” event for prospective season ticket holders. Fans can choose their seats and purchase season ticket plans ranging from a 13-game plan to an 81-game full season plan. Autographs at the Select-A-Seat stop are limited to fans purchasing season ticket plans. This is the third year that the Select-A-Seat stop has been included as part of the caravan.
On the Northern tour that stops in Ohio and West Virginia, fans can see broadcaster Thom Brennaman, catcher Devin Mesoraco, general manager Walt Jocketty, Reds chief operating officer Phil Castellini, Reds Hall of Famer Tom Browning, minor league outfielder Ryan LaMarre and mascot Mr. Redlegs.
And the Western tour will have stops in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky and features manager Dusty Baker, infielder Todd Frazier, broadcasters Jim Kelch and Jeff Brantley, 2011 Reds Minor League Player of the Year Billy Hamilton, vice president of baseball operations Dick Williams and mascot Rosie Red.
