Reds invite Obama to Civil Rights Game in June


Recommended Posts

CINCINNATI (AP)—The Cincinnati Reds have invited President Barack Obama to throw out the first pitch at this year’s Civil Rights Game at Great American Ball Park.

The game is June 20 against Obama’s favorite team, the Chicago White Sox.

Reds chief executive Bob Castellini says the White House has not responded to the invitation.

The Civil Rights Game has been played in Memphis, Tenn., since 2007 as an exhibition at the end of spring training. The Reds bid and won the right to host the game in 2009 and 2010.
