The caravan is coming by automobile and will stop at an automobile business.

The annual Cincinnati Reds’ Caravan will visit Fannin Motors in Ashland, Ky., from 3-to-5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24.

Some top names are scheduled to make the trip including infielder Todd Frazier — one of the National League’s top rookies last year — and base-stealing king Billy Hamilton who was the Minor League Player of the Year.

Also making the stop will be broadcaster Jim Kelch, former Reds’ reliever and current radio color man Jeff Brantley, Baseball Operations Vice President Dick Williams and mascot Rosie Red.

Players will field questions and sign autographs while time allows. Fans are limited to one autograph per person per Reds’ personality.

All Caravan fan stops are open to the pubic and they are free. At each stop the Reds will raffle two tickets to Opening Day when the Reds face the Los Angeles Angels at 4:10 p.m. on Monday, April 1.

Single game tickets to the Opening Night game at 7:10 p.m. on Wednesday are also available at selected stops.

Other stops on the Southern tour include 7-to-9 p.m. in Charleston, W.Va., on Thursday, and in Cincinnati from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4:30-to-6:30 p.m. at the Greenwood Mall in Bowling Green, Ky., on Saturday, and from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Sunday at The Shops at Lexington Center in Lexington, Ky.
