Reds announce their 2020 caravan stops

We know many of you are interested in attending one of these Reds January caravan events. They’re a great way to meet and hear from Reds players, coaches, broadcasters and front office personnel. They answer questions and sign autographs. If you do attend one, we’d love to hear your account and see pictures you take.

Among attendees expected for the 2020 Caravan are Reds Manager David Bell, 2019 All-Star pitcher Luis Castillo, catcher Tucker Barnhart, outfielder Aristides Aquino, pitchers Lucas Sims and Amir Garrett infielder Josh VanMeter and more. Representing the Reds farm system on the Caravan will include Jonathan India, Michael Siani, Narciso Crook & José Garcia.

The full list of attendees for each tour group and times of the stops will be announced in early January. All Caravan locations, times and participants are subject to change.

Steve Mancuso is a lifelong Reds fan who grew up during the Big Red Machine era. He’s been writing about the Reds for more than ten years. Steve’s fondest memories about the Reds include attending a couple 1975 World Series games, being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter and going nuts for Jay Bruce at Clinchmas. Steve was also at all three games of the 2012 NLDS, but it’s too soon to talk about that.
