Opening Day Parade Grand Marshal Announced
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Baseball season is getting closer each day.
And we now know who will lead off the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade. Officials announced that Dave Concepcion will be this year's Grand Marshal.
Of course he was the Reds shortstop during the glory days of the Big Red Machine. Concepcion played for the team that won two straight World Series titles in 1975 and 1976. He spent his entire Major League career with the Reds until retiring in 1988. The nine-time All Star also won five Gold Gloves and two Silver Sluggers.
Opening Day this year is March 31st. After the parade the Reds take on the Saint Louis Cardinals.
