After appearing as the visiting team at the openings of the National Leagues last 2 new stadiums, PNC Park in Pittsburgh and Miller Field in Milwaukee, baseballs oldest professional franchise, the Cincinnati Reds, opened their own new ballpark March 31st, 2003, in front of a crowd of 42,343. The opening pitch is on its way from Reds starter Jimmy Haynes to the Pirates Kenny Lofton. Jason Larue is the catcher, the infield consists of Sean Casey at 1st, Aaron Boone at 2nd, Barry Larkin at short and Brandon Larson at 3rd. In the outfield, Adam Dunn is in left, Ken Griffey Jr. in center and Austin Kearns in right. The fans were treated to a patriotic pre-game program saluting servicemen in the Persian Gulf and an unveiling of a statue of Ted Kluszewski. Ken Griffey Jr. thrilled the fans by producing the first hit at Great American Ballpark, a double in the first inning, but the Pirates prevailed by a score of 10-1 on a sunny 53 degree afternoon.
