Groups can visit ballpark

Tours of facility will begin Aug. 21

        The Great American Ball Park construction site will be opened up to group tours.

        Construction managers at the ballpark will give free 30-minute group tours on the third Wednesday of each month, starting Aug. 21. The park is to open in April.

        The final day of tours will be Jan. 15.

        Eligible groups include civic organizations, professional societies and public groups.

        “Without playing police, we want to try and limit the tours to formal, legitimate groups,” ballpark spokeswoman Debra DeCourcy said. “Each tour will be limited to 30 people, so the tours can have more than one group up to the maximum number of people.”

        “We're pleased to offer tours to small groups so they can see the work progress,” said Mike Sieving, construction project executive for Hamilton County.

        Group members touring the facility must wear long pants and hard-sole shoes. No one wearing a dress, skirt, sneakers or sandals will be permitted.

        Groups can sign up by calling 564-0700. Each group will be required to fill out a registration form. A drawing will determine the winning entries.

        Ballpark tour dates: Aug. 21; Sept. 18; Oct. 16; Nov. 13; Jan. 15.
