CINCINNATI — Reds pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Mat Latos will ride in the 94th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade.

“We are so excited to have Reds players participate in our parade again this year,” said Neil Luken, parade chairman.

“In the history of the parade, it’s rather unprecedented for active players to appear in the parade. I want to thank the Reds and the Castellini Family for starting this new tradition in 2009.”

Since ‘09, the following Reds players have appeared in the parade: Edinson Volquez and Johnny Cueto (2009), Arroyo (2010), Mike Leake and Travis Wood (2011) and Latos and Nick Masset (2012).
