My family has attended three games at Great American Ball Park in 2014. We were at Opening Day against the Cardinals and the first two games of the Rays series.
So, that is 27 innings of baseball. The Reds have scored one run and collected 11 hits.
This is the starting lineup that face Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals tomorrow afternoon.

Other than a temporary fill-in because of injury, the Reds had two shortstops until I was 30 years old. Dave Concepcion played shortstop for the Big Red Machine and turned the reigns over to Barry Larkin in the mid-80s.
Both were team captains and spent their entire career in Cincinnati. The Reds have announced that they will throw out simultaneous first pitches on Opening Day.
