For over a decade, the Cincinnati Reds have partnered with Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana to provide a unique experience for children with life-threatening illnesses. Prior to Friday home games, Reds players and coaches visit with these special guests on the field during batting practice, taking pictures and signing autographs. The families have the opportunity to take in big league views of the ballpark leaving them with great memories for years to come.
Throughout the 2019 season, Cincinnati Reds players and mascots made monthly visits to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Players interacted with young patients by participating in in-room visits, visiting the activity centers and the Seacrest Studios.
