There were 33,438 people at Great American Ball Park on September 9th, but only one of them was a Cincinnati Reds/Ohio Lottery VIP! Cole Barney of Tipp City submitted a $5 non-winning instant ticket for a chance to win the VIP experience with the Reds. Believe it or not, Cole says its the first contest he has ever won!
When Cole and his three best friends arrived at the stadium, the Reds presented him with his authentic jersey and an autographed Scott Rolen picture. They got all inclusive tickets in the Fox Sports Ohio Champions Club to watch the Reds take on the Astros.
Cole was a big winner that day, but unfortunately his luck didn’t rub off on the Reds. They lost to the Astros 5-1.
