Reds All Star Game Baseball

Great American Ball Park


Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, caught fire during Friday’s game against the Giants. The Reds evacuated fans from the center field seats while firefighters put out the flames to applause. Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News tweeted some pictures of the fire, including this one:

Nothing to see here. Just a major-league ballpark on fire.
