I wanted to have a good start to July, and it had been a while since I had been to GABP, where I have had alot of success at in the past. I headed out to the Queen City starting the month of July at 150 balls.
Some of the sights I enjoyed along the way..

As you can see the weather for Tuesdays game was looking iffy, it poured from about 3:30 to 3:45 but luckily the grounds crew got the field ready in a hurry when the rain ceased.
I was able to take a walk around the Cincinnati Reds HOF museum which is very well put together and full of Reds history and cool baseball stuff.
The new feature at the museum was titled, “Threads.” Reds uniforms from as far back as the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings who were baseballs first all professional team who carried ten salaried players.
