Tonight the Cincinnati Reds prospect team will face off against the Texas Rangers prospect team to open up the 2024 Spring Breakout series. This is the first of it’s kind, at least when it comes to matching up against other organizations. The Reds, and several other teams, have played similar style games in the past, usually where a team of prospects would face off against the big league team in an exhibition game.

When and Where

The game will begin at 6:05pm ET (3:05pm local time in Arizona). There will be no radio coverage of the game, but you will be able to tune in on and watch the game. If you happen to be in the greater Phoenix area, the game will be played at Surprise Stadium.

The Rules for the day

  • There is no 3-batter rule for pitchers.
  • Pitchers can be removed and re-enter the game at a later point.
  • Position players can not re-enter the game once removed unless it is to replace an injured player.
  • There will be a pitch clock.
  • Teams will be limited to seven mound visits.
  • Pitchcom is allowed to be used.
  • The game will be played with the Triple-A baseball.

    They should do a march madness single elimination tournament. Yes, it’s logistically impossible, but still…..that would be a lot of fun.
