BTN & College Partners Enjoy Reds Game via Fan Express

As the Cincinnati Reds make a push to the playoffs, and fans flock to Great American Ball Park to watch them play, FOX Sports Ohio’s Fan Express to Reds Country has been the coveted ride to get them there. Not only have groups of Reds fans from all over Cincinnati and Dayton enjoyed trips to the ballpark on the luxury coach, but FOX Sports Ohio has treated college and BTN partners to the Fan Express experience.
On Tuesday, Sept. 4, members from The Ohio State University, including President E. Gordon Gee, attended the Reds game in style. President Gee heard about FOX Sports Ohio's "Bowtie Tuesday" Reds telecats, where analyst Chris Welsh wears a bowtie during the game. Being an avid bowtie wearer himself, he wanted to attend a Tuesday game and participate in "Bowtie Tuesday". The Fan Express brought in the group from OSU’s Columbus campus, and Gee enjoyed a booth visit and was featured during the telecast.

"The Fan Express helped create the perfect “night at the ballpark” for Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee and 35 Ohio State students who wanted to break away from their studies to enjoy the spirit of Great American Ball Park.  After enjoying door-to-door service, popcorn, hotdogs and crackerjacks, it’s not surprising that we received wonderful feedback from those students who participated in the event. After returning to campus, students felt like Hollywood stars after their classmates saw them repeatedly on Fox Sports Ohio."

"FOX Sports Ohio was kind enough to offer the Cincinnati Bearcats Department of Athletics the chance to experience the Fan Express. We were able to take that opportunity to thank our staff who work so hard behind the scenes and treat them to an incredible night. Many thanks go out to FOX Sports Ohio for the wonderful experience."
