Volunteer opportunity with Reds’ Green Team to help recycling

Casey Brown thought some of our readers might be interested in the following volunteer opportunity published in the Interchange newsletter she recently received:

The Cincinnati Reds have started a Green Team and are looking for volunteers. About 30-40 volunteers are needed at all weekend games. The volunteers will be given credentials to enter the game via Gapper's Alley, which is located on the north side of the ball park.

Volunteers will not have an assigned seat but will have standing room only access for the games they work. In addition, all volunteers will receive a Reds Green Team t-shirt. Green Team volunteers will be able to watch the games until the 6th inning. At the start of the 6th inning, volunteers should gather at Gapper’s Alley and get their section assignments provided by the Reds. Reds crews will work with the volunteers, provide them with clear plastic bags, and take the full bags from the volunteers. After all of the aisles are combed at or at the top of the 9th inning, the collection of the recyclables will cease.

During the 7th Inning Stretch, the groups of volunteers will be recognized by the PA announcer. The Reds would like all the volunteers to be no younger than high school age. If you are interested in being part of the Reds Green Team at Great American Ball Park, please email Sean Brown of the Cincinnati Reds at .
