Reds debut first-ever triple-barrel, cart-mounted souvenir launcher named "Redzilla"
The "first-ever triple barrel, cart-mounted souvenir launcher" has 57 barrels and is capable of firing up to 171 soft baseballs or 114 t-shirts into the upper decks of the ballpark.
"Fueled by 160 lbs. of CO2 and generating nearly 1,000 PSI, Redzilla was created and fabricated by FX in Motion from New Berlin, Wisconsin," according to a release from the Reds.
"Launching souvenirs into the stands is a fan favorite at Great American Ball Park,” said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer. “We designed Redzilla to be a spectacle that adds to the fun by launching t-shirts and balls unprecedented distances into the upper decks."
“Joseph Auto Group is excited to partner with our hometown Reds to bring fans this new exciting element to the game experience,” said Ron Joseph, Jr., of Joseph Auto Group.
"Fans can see Redzilla in action at all games this season during the middle of the 4th inning break plus following each Reds win," said a release from the Reds.
