Play Ball: It's Opening Day in Cincinnati

It’s Opening Day in Cincinnati, Ohio! Now this isn’t just any season opener, Opening Day in Cincinnati is an unofficial city holiday. Downtown is painted red as people gather for the 98th Opening Day Parade and celebrations around town. Offices slow down and desks are empty in schools. Today, Cincinnatians are gearing up for the hometown Reds’ game against the Phillies. We don our red, grab our game day snacks, and pray for fair weather.

Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks

As the time for the first pitch nears, fans fill the seats of the Great American Ball Park on the Ohio riverfront. But, the game would not be complete without an assortment of sodas, popcorn, peanuts, and crackerjacks. Not only is Cincinnati the home of baseball, it’s also the home of the Surface Analyst: the surface cleanliness device that guarantees bonding success, so that bag of peanuts, those fountain cups filled with fizzy drinks, and even that box of cracker jacks, stays sturdy through the game. The Surface Analyst monitors and verifies surface treatments such as flame and corona on materials used in packaging like PET and polyethylene so the material is ready to be printed, metallized, sealed, coated, or bonded. This means that your paper cup can hold liquids, your chips and candy stay fresh, and the labels are colorful and fun.

Last year, the Surface Analyst made it to the World Series. We hope to make it again this year to cheer on our hometown team, the Reds!


The Surface Analyst works with the film and flexible packaging industry to bring fans the best and most reliable product so there’s nothing standing between you and the game.

Go Reds!
