OMGreds hit the road again this year to chase the annual Reds Caravan. The past few years we’ve trekked up to Columbus for the stop at Polaris Fashion Place, but this time around we hit the Dayton stop at the National Museum of the USAF on Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
The Dayton stop was the final destination of the Northern Leg of the Caravan tour and featured Thom Brennaman, Phil Castellini, Walt Jocketty, Devin Mesoraco, Tom Browning, Ryan LaMarre and Mr. Redlegs.
And what a venue for this event. Not only was there plenty of room for a great crowd, but you’re surrounded by military history and the famous jets that you had on posters in your room as an 8-year-old. You know, the F-22, that was right below the Ferrari Testarossa and right next to Paula Abdul.
As for the program, it was to the point. A short Q&A (Peppered mostly with questions for Walt about why the Reds gave up so much for Mat Latos) preceded an autograph session. There were quite a few folks in front of us during the autograph session, but when we finally reached the stage all the guys were still very personable and accommodating. After a couple of days on the road and meeting a bunch of crazies like us, you would imagine they might be a little weary of the fans, but they were great. It was very much appreciated by the OMGcrew.
