Masset enjoys homecoming in St. Petersburg
ST. PETERSBURG -- Several hours before Tuesday's game against the Rays, Reds reliever Nick Masset was making ticket arrangements for over 20 family and friends.

Masset grew up in nearby Pinellas Park, Fla., and lives in Odessa, Fla., during the offseason. He also pitched for St. Petersburg Junior College.

"It's always nice to come back to your hometown and throw in front of your family, friends and coaches and teammates I've had in the past growing up," Masset said. "It's exciting. I have a good time with it, all the support and spending time with them before and after games."

Masset pitched a scoreless ninth inning with one hit to close the Reds' 5-0 win on Monday.

"You want to pitch well, no matter where you're at, but it's an added incentive to do it in front of the friends and coaches that helped me get to where I'm at," Masset said.
