Tri-State Cincinnati Reds fans have a big appetite for their team. The Reds Winter Caravan hopes to give those fans plenty to feed on.

Usually, the Reds make one stop in the area, but this year the caravan will be available at three different stops over two days.

First, the Reds will stop from 2-3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27, at Big Sandy Furniture in South Point.

On Sunday, Jan. 28, the caravan will be at the Ashland (Ky.) Town Center Mall from noon to 2 p.m., then travel to the Huntington (W.Va.) Mall from 4-6 p.m.

This year’s caravan will make 26 stops in 21 cities and towns by using two separate caravans.

The Southern caravan will feature Reds announcer Marty Brennaman, infielder Brandon Phillips, executive vice president and chief operating officer John Allen and general manager Wayne Krivsky.

Also expected to attend will be the Reds Minor League Player of the Year that will be announced on Jan. 24.

At each stop the Reds will raffle off two tickets to Opening Day against the Chicago Cubs.

Reds officials will be on hand with schedules and ticket information. Fans will be able to get autographs after a question-and-answer session and take pictures.

Representatives with the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum and Regional Tourism Network will attend selected stops.
