As we promised we’ll be headed to Cincinnati to cover Jay Bruce’s Major League debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates. We offer a firsthand look at the sights and sounds of possibly the most anticipated debut of a young ballplayer in the past decade.
This is a move not to just be celebrated by Reds fans all over; but I’ve noticed the enthusiasm by fans all over baseball to see this kid play.
The talent pool of young players all over baseball seems to be at an all-time high, and Jay Bruce is the crown gem of them all in our opinion. This is good for the sport and promotes more fandom. As we’re sure to see in Bruce’s debut, attendance will spike at Great American Ball Park.
So head out and get yourself a few Skyline Chili-Cheese coneys or some Montgomery Inn before first pitch tonight. It is the initial Jay Bruce Day in baseball. It is the dawn of a new era.
