Nice gesture by Harang

The Reds announced this today:

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aaron Harang today announced his Aaron's Aces ticket program for children of military personnel currently serving in the War on Terrorism.

For all Sunday home games the rest of the season, beginning this weekend, Harang will host 30 guests in sun deck Section 143. Along with the free tickets, Harang will provide $10 in concession coupons and a custom-made Aaron's Aces t-shirt.

The groups in April, May and June will be visiting from nearby Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

In addition to the Aaron's Aces program, the Reds are continuing their military ticket programs in which they provide active military personnel with complimentary seats.

Active military members with proper identification will receive complimentary View Level tickets, subject to availability, on day of game only for games played Monday through Thursday. All ticket acquisitions must be made on the day of the game at the Advance Ticket Windows, located at Crosley Terrace at Great American Ball Park. Groups of 20 or more are requested to call the community relations office 21 business days in advance of desired game (513-765-7000).

Reds chief operating officer John Allen, a Vietnam Veteran, sponsors a ticket program that allows fans from the Veterans Medical Center to enjoy Reds games on May 28, June 14, July 26, August 9 and September 5.

Disabled American Veterans Day returns May 25, when the Reds face the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7:10. Pre-game ceremonies will include a ceremonial first pitch and a color guard presentation. A special DAV baseball card set featuring Bronson Arroyo, Juan Castro, Aaron Harang and Brandon Phillips will be given away to the first 20,000 fans in attendance.

I think it's great how the new Reds management has embraced these types of things.

They really embraced Bronson's music and turned into Charity events. It's good for everybody, the Reds, the players and most of all the charites and families of each event. Good news.
