Great American Ballpark Makes Great Improvements for 2014 Season
The robins have made their appearance, spring is officially here, and baseball season has arrived. While typically those types of things are associated with warm weather, ice cream cones, and driving your cars through Cincinnati OH with the windows down, this sadly is not the case. The weather is cold, snow flurries remain in the forecast, and it seems that winter has not received the memo that it is spring’s turn. The weather outside may still be frightful, but we know for a fact that the cold temperatures and snow cannot last forever. We are looking ahead towards spring and summer, and the first thing that comes to mind is baseball. A hot dog in one hand, and a cold beverage in the other, with the sun beating down on you while you sit at Great American Ball Park to watch the best team in baseball. Now, that’s a scene we could get used to. This year Great American Ballpark has some new amenities that you will want to know about before going down to root on your Cincinnati Reds.
From concession stands, new technology, new food and beverages, and fan clubs – there are so many updates to the ballpark this year, and it is almost impossible to go over everything! Three new concession stands will grace the ballpark this year including an 85-foot long bar in sections 117 and 118 called the Reds Brewery District, a place to grab your favorite craft beer at the Moerlein Lager House Craft Beer Concessions, and Cincinnati’s own Taste of Belgium waffle concession. Instant replay, the Reds Connect Zone which features real-time social media interaction, and iBeacons which will link to your smartphone to provide you with all of the information you will need for the day. A day at the ballpark will never be the same!
Be on the lookout for special new fan clubs that promise to engage fans from birth up to eighteen years old, as well as the Kroger Fan Zone which will feature a photo booth and 14-foot replica of the Queen City Tower. Be sure to get out to a game this season and check out these great new additions to an already great ballpark!
