With temperatures plummeting and winter sports hitting full swing, the Cincinnati Reds hosted their annual Redsfest this past weekend at the Duke Energy Convention Center.  On Saturday, the Reds announced their 6th annual Skyline Chili Reds Futures High School Showcase 2017 schedule.  The event will feature 82 high school baseball and softball teams this year with games played at some of the best baseball venues in the area.

Once again, the Lakota West Firebirds will participate with a game against Mason hosted at Prasco Park, 7pm.  Reds Showcase games have a $5 admission, but the admission is waived with games at Prasco Park.  The Showcase admission includes a voucher good for a free View Level ticket to one of the 2017 Reds home games at Great American Ball Park and a coupon for a FREE Skyline Chili Coney.

In addition to playing in a Reds Futures Game, all participating baseball teams are invited to “March at the Majors” in a parade around the Great American Ball Park field prior to the Reds vs. Chicago Cubs game on Sunday, April 23 at 1:10pm.  MVP’s from each of the 42 games will also be recognized prior to the game.

“The Reds Futures Showcase is a first class event that helps get people excited about high school baseball. Our players get to play under the lights, at the best field in the city, against one of our top rivals. Playing Mason, is a rematch from last year. It was the best high school baseball environment that I have seen in my 18 years of coaching. It is also the best place in the city to watch a game. There is no entrance fee, free concessions, great seats, and a great family atmosphere,” said Lakota West Head Baseball Coach Greg Leurck.
