Each tour travels simultaneously through Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee providing fans with the opportunity to interact with current and former players, broadcasters and members of the Reds front office staff. At each fan stop, the group will field questions from fans and sign autographs while time allows.

The four tours return to Cincinnati on Sunday, Jan. 26 for the annual Select-A-Seat event at Great American Ball Park, where they will join fans meeting with Reds ticket representatives to choose ticket plans and seat locations for the 2014 season.

"As our fan base continues to grow, we are expanding the Caravan to visit every corner of Reds Country," said Phil Castellini, Reds Chief Operating Officer. "Our player, coaches, broadcasters, and Reds personnel look forward to these four days every year as our official kick off to the new season of Reds baseball. It's amazing to experience the welcome we receive from our loyal fans at every stop along the way."

All Caravan fan stops open to the public are free, and at each fan stop listed below (excluding Select-A-Seat) the Reds will raffle two tickets to the 2014 Opening Day game on Monday, March 31 (4:10 pm) vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.

Reds sales representatives will be at each stop to answer ticketing questions and discuss 2014 ticket plans, while the Reds Hall of Fame, the Reds Community Fund and Cincinnati USA Regional Tourism Network will attend selected stops.

Memberships to the Reds Heads Kids Club, Reds Rookies Baby Club and Reds Hall of Fame & Museum will be for sale at selected stops.

On Sunday, Jan. 26, the Reds will host the annual Select-A-Seat event at Great American Ball Park. Fans can meet with Reds ticket representatives from 9 am to 2 pm to choose their season tickets for 2014. Select members of the Reds Caravan will conduct a Q&A at Noon.
