CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Reds kick of the 2013 season at Great American Ball Park on Monday.

First pitch against the Los Angeles Angels is at 4:10 p.m. Reds starter Johnny Cueto is squaring off against the Angels Jered Weaver.

An Opening Day block party began at 11 a.m. on Joe Nuxhall Way and Freedom Way and runs through the end of the game. Admission is free. Food and drinks are available for purchase. All proceeds benefit the Reds Community Fund's P&G MLB Urban Youth Academy.

Joe Torre, manager of Team USA in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Cincinnati firefighter John Winfrey will sing the National Anthem.

The rain is expected to hold off for the game. We could see a sprinkle during the parade, though. Temperatures will be chilly with a high of 45 degrees. Get your complete Opening Day forecast at www.fox19.com/weather.
