After snow fell in Ohio and Kentucky on Friday, the Cincinnati Reds shared photos of the beauty it created at the Major League Baseball team’s Great American Ball Park located on the Ohio River between the two states.

Captioning the photo grouping with “There’s snow place like home,” the Reds didn’t mention that Opening Day for the beloved home team is in just 69 days when the Washington Nationals visit.

Tickets to the opener, slated for 4:10 p.m. March 28, are currently available through the team’s season package purchases.
