The Cincinnati Reds plan to have Nick Goepper throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day 2018.
Goepper is a Lawrenceburg, Ind., native who won the silver medal in slopestyle at the recently completed Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Goepper also threw out a ceremonial first pitch for “Reds Opening Night” in 2014 after he won a bronze medal.
This season the Reds will open March 29 at home against the Washington Nationals.
