The Cincinnati Reds and Findlay Market announce that Reds Hall of Famer Dave Concepción will be the Grand Marshal of the 95th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade, which kicks off at Noon on Monday, March 31.



Considered one of the best shortstops in history, the Venezuelan-born Concepción was a nine-time All-Star and winner of five Gold Gloves during his 19 seasons with Cincinnati. He was named team captain in 1973.




Concepción was inducted in the Reds Hall of Fame in 2000 and his jersey number 13 was retired by the Reds in 2007.




The first pitch for the Reds vs. St. Louis Cardinals Opening Day game is 4:10 p.m.
