FOX Sports Ohio is also happy to partner with local 12 WKRC-TV to simulcast Reds Opening Day! Local 12 Vice-President and General Manager Les Vann said, "Local 12 WKRC-TV is proud to partner with FOX Sports Ohio to bring you the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Game. There is nothing more local than the tradition and pride of The Cincinnati Reds and the history of opening day baseball, right here on Local 12. We would like to thank FOX Sports Ohio and the Reds for this partnership."
FOX Sports Ohio is also proud to announce that the Reds telecasts will feature two new production enhancements for the 2010 season: X-Mo and FOX Trax.
X-Mo is a high speed camera/replay device that will bring viewers incredible clarity on replays. X-Mo will slow an image down to 3,000 frames per second versus a normal fram of video which is 30 frames per second. Using this amazing technology, game details such as the rotation of a pitch or the splintering of a bat will now be seen in crystal clarity.

FOX Trax will show viewers new and compelling data elements such as break, release and end speed, spin direction and pinpoint location of the ball as it crosses the front of home plate from the pitcher's hand. Combined with a pitch type classification graphic, viewers will have more insight into pitcher strategy that will make the action even more engaging and exciting.
