Reds Caravan comes to a close in Lexington
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The fourth and final day of the 2011 Reds Caravan concluded for all three legs of the tour. The southern leg had a large stop in front of an estimated crowd of 700 fans at The Shops at Lexington Center.

Reds president/CEO Bob Castellini, general manager Walt Jocketty, Hall of Famer Joe Morgan, right fielder Jay Bruce, prospect Yasmani Grandal and former Reds pitcher Tom Browning participated in a question-and-answer session and later signed autographs.

"The receptions have been phenomenal, it's amazing," Jocketty said. "Every stop has gotten bigger and bigger. We had a big crowd in Bowling Green [on Saturday]. We had to stay an extra 40 minutes in Ashland the other night so we could take care of everybody."

The three legs of the 2011 Reds Caravan covered Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia and traveled a combined 2,800 miles.
