CINCINNATI -- The Reds Caravan finale scheduled for Sunday at Great American Ball Park has been canceled, the club announced.
"As a result of the overnight winter storm and the resulting snow emergencies declared in Hamilton County and surrounding communities, and with respect to everyone's safety, the Reds Caravan Finale and all related ballpark events scheduled for today have been canceled," the Reds said in a statement.
Because of the travel schedules of the players, no makeup date will be scheduled.
The finale was originally slated to be at Florence Mall in Northern Kentucky, but the forecast promoted the Reds to move the event to Great American Ball Park.
Reds Caravan featured four different busses that hit the road Thursday and spread out to cover Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia and Tennessee. Manager David Bell, third baseman Eugenio Suarez, second baseman Scooter Gennett, catcher Tucker Barnhart and pitchers Tanner Roark, Sal Romano and Cody Reed were among those who participated.
