Joey Votto throws out the first pitch for the Reds and is greeted by fellow Reds great Joe Burrow
As part of the Cincinnati Reds’ Opening Day celebration, Joey Votto, the Cincinnati Bengals’ starting quarterback, met Joey Burrow before throwing out the first pitch.
During the Cincinnati Reds’ Opening Day, the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow threw out the first pitch. Joey Votto had just met Burrow at the event.
Burrow is coming off a fantastic sophomore season in the NFL, in which he led the Bengals to the Super Bowl after they were previously toothless.
Despite falling short to the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi, it was a season to remember on the Queen City gridiron, and hopefully a portent of better things to come. Votto, on the other hand, is a diamond legend as well as a TikTok sensation.
Burrow, along with Bengals teammates Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, had the opportunity to meet Votto in person.
On opening day, Burrow throws a dart at head coach Zac Taylor behind the plate.

Even though the Bengals have dominated the NFL this season, Cincinnati has been the Reds’ home for years.
They are not only the city’s first professional sports team, but they are also founding members of the National League. Even though the Reds haven’t won a championship since the 1990 World Series, they still have a lot of fans.
Cincinnati’s national sports prominence has risen significantly in recent months, both with the recent inclusion of FC Cincinnati into MLS and the AAC’s Cincinnati Bearcats’ impending move to the Big 12.
Burrow is already a college football icon and on his way to being the best Bengals player since Anthony Muoz, while Votto is nearing the end of his borderline hall-of-fame big-league career.
Why is Higgins wearing a sling, even though Burrow seems as good as new after the Super Bowl?
