Worth noting

The western leg of the Reds Caravan made its first stop in Bridgetown, Ohio, with the winners of the first annual Reds Caravan Home Takeover contest. It was the home of Keith and Sherry Gregor, who were picked from a pool of 200 contestants vying for the caravan stop.

For the contest that began in December, Reds fans were asked to submit an essay on why a stop at their home would make a great addition to the caravan. As the winners, the Gregors were able to invite 20 people to their home for the stop to meet broadcaster Marty Brennaman, catcher Brayan Pena and Reds great Eric Davis -- among others.

Incidentally, Keith Gregor played college basketball for the University of Cincinnati Bearcats from 1992-96.
