ASK ME ABOUT: What’s new for the 2023 baseball season

WHAT CAN REDS FANS EXPECT THIS YEAR? We have an exciting young core group of players returning this season, and watch for more young stars from our prolific player pipeline to make an impact as they arrive at the majors. Major League Baseball has also put several new rules in place that will make the games quicker and filled with action, like more stolen base attempts, doubles, triples, and great defensive plays.

ARE THERE ANY NEW STADIUM EXPERIENCES TO REPORT? One highlight is a visit from the New York Yankees May 19-21, the first time ever the Yankees have played a weekend series in Cincinnati. We are thrilled to host a Zac Brown Band Post-Game Benefit Concert 4ALS on June 2. Our Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is inducting a new class, including Bronson Arroyo, Danny Graves, and the late Gabe Paul, the weekend of July 21-23. This season also represents the 20th anniversary of Great American Ball Park’s opening, and we’re celebrating with a ballpark replica giveaway on April 15. New in the ballpark are Chick-fil-A, Fifty West Burger Bar, and the BetMGM Sportsbook in the Wings and Rings Machine Room.

WHAT DEFINES THE REDS FAN EXPERIENCE? Enjoying a Reds baseball game with family and friends is part of the summer experience on the banks of the Ohio River. Our goal is to make sure every fan has a great time at the ballpark and can’t wait to come back for their next one.
