Reds plan for Hispanic Heritage Night

HOUSTON -- As part of Major League Baseball's efforts to recognize Hispanic Heritage Month, the Reds will be holding Hispanic Heritage Night during the Sept. 27 game vs. the Pirates.

Among the festivities planned are dancers in the fan zone and Crosley Terrace -- where flags from 22 countries that have Spanish as their main language will be flying -- as gates open. The band Azucar Tumbao will play in the fan zone. Students from the Academy of Multilingual Studies will be arriving on buses provided by Reds players and holding the 22 flags on the field before the game. The students will have tickets and food for the game from the "Amigos de los Rojos" program sponsored by Aroldis Chapman, Johnny Cueto and Alfredo Simon.

Anthony Simms-Howell will receive the Community Advocate award, which recognizes business representatives, community leaders and civil servants in our community who advocate connection and inclusion. Howell is a longtime supporter of the Reds Community Fund and an advocate for Latin Americans in the region. The governor's office will be sending certificates honoring the Reds' Latin players and managers for their work in the community which will be presented on-field.
