Thanks to a new nursing suite, the Cincinnati Reds are making it easier for families to enjoy a night at the ballpark.
The Reds spent this offseason giving their stadium a bit of a makeover. With the 2015 MLB All-Star Game coming to Cincinnati, the team has upgraded the look of its concession stands and even added a new bar. However, the biggest upgrade went beyond the usual amenities.
On Monday, the Reds announced that they have added a nursing suite to Great American Ball Park:
This new nursing station will make it easier for fans to take care of their young children. Per the Reds' Michael Anderson, via Better Off Red's Jamie Ramsey, the nursing station will include "comfortable gliders, a kitchenette with a sink, ice and refrigeration, a private restroom, changing stations and lockers for storing your items during the game."
Per ESPN.com's Darren Rovell, Reds Chief Operating Officer Phil Castellini said many fans had asked for the team to look at ways to make it easier to accommodate those who needed to nurse their children while at the game. The club decided to go all out in order to help its fans.
"It just didn't make sense that we would put a couple chairs in the women's bathrooms," Castellini said.
For those of you who don't want to miss a second of the game while taking care of your children, the Reds have you covered.
"We'll also have flat-screen TVs so that they won't miss the game, and there will be toys to play with if the three-year-old has to come with them," Castellini said.
Some fans may not be able to go to the ballpark because they have young children. With the addition of the nursing station, the Reds have made it easier for families to spend a night at the stadium.
