Reds announce 2015 promotional schedule

On Monday, the Reds unveiled their full promotional schedule for 2015, which is highlighted by 14 fireworks shows and nine bobblehead giveaways. Also included in next year's schedule is a new kids' poster series, which will feature a new player poster to be given out at every Sunday home game.

Current players Todd Frazier (April 11), Billy Hamilton (May 30), Brandon Phillips (June 20), Devin Mesoraco (Aug. 1) and a Reds player selected for the All-Star Game (Sept. 26) will be among the bobbleheads handed out next season. The Reds will also feature a "Stars of the Queen" City bobblehead set, which will feature Johnny Bench (May 16), Barry Larkin (June 6) and a player to be named later (Sept. 12).

Great American Ball Park will host a postgame fireworks show after every Friday home game next season. There will also be fireworks following the Reds' April 9 "Opening Night" contest against the Pirates. Prior to the game, Reds players and coaches will meet fans as they walk a red carpet at the stadium. Fans attending that game will also receive a team calendar.

Other highlights of the promotional schedule include a commemorative Nasty Boys triple bobblehead (April 25), a 2015 All-Star drawstring bag (July 4), a Tony Perez replica statue on Tony Perez Day (Aug. 22) and a Reds stein on German Heritage Night (Sept. 5).

As part of Family Sundays, the Reds will allow all fans to run the bases after the game on April 12, June 7 and Sept. 27. On select Sundays during the season, the Reds will also have face painters, circus performers and other entertainers at the ballpark.

Though single-game tickets don't become available until Feb. 28, the Reds already have season ticket plans, 13-game mini-plans and the "Nasty Boys" six-game plans for purchase. To view the full promotional schedule, visit
