Another greeting to you, cincyreds! I just posted a welcome in the Fantasy Baseball Talk forum.
I'm sure a wonderful time was had tonight in the first game (though exhibition) in Great American Ball Park, although the team results weren't great. Dempster bombed, but the bullpen was sterling.
Here are some firsts in GABP, but we'll have for real firsts on Monday:
First hit - A homer by Cleveland's Matt Lawton in the first inning.
First Reds hit - A single by Ken Griffey, Jr. in the first inning.
First Reds extra-base hit - A double by Aaron Boone in the sixth inning.
First Reds run, RBI, and homer - A homer by Austin Kearns off Danys Baez in the ninth inning.
First ball to be hit out in batting practice (per Marty and Joe) - Corky Miller
