The four caravan tours travel through Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee giving fans the opportunity to interact with current and former players, top minor leaguers, broadcasters, members of the Reds front office staff and mascots.
At each of the 17 fan stops, the groups will field questions and sign autographs while time allows.
All Caravan fan stops are free and open to the public, and at each fan stop the Reds will raffle two tickets to the 2019 Opening Day game on Thursday, March 28 (4:10 pm) vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Reds caravan will culminate with a finale at the Florence Mall in Florence, Ky. on Sunday, Jan. 20. Doors to the mall open at 9 a.m. and the Q&A with players will begin at 11 a.m. From noon to 2 p.m., fans can get autographs with current players and photos with Reds alumni and minor leaguers.
All times, locations and participants are subject to change. Additional caravan participants may be added to select tours.
Seating is limited at all stops. Autographs will be available on a first-come, first-served basis while time allows. No posed photographs. There may be restrictions on items participants can sign.
