CINCINNATI (June 30, 2017) - The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum's 2017 bobblehead series, presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, continues in July with Reds Hall of Famer Ron Oester.

A Cincinnati native, Oester played his entire 17-year professional baseball career with the Reds organization. He finished fourth in Rookie of the Year voting in 1980 after playing in 100 games for the Reds. Oester was the recipient of MLB's Hutch Award in 1987 following his return from a devastating knee injury. In his last season with the Reds, he was a key player off the bench for the 1990 World Champion Reds, scoring the winning run in the pennant-clinching game over the Pirates in Game 6 of the NLCS. Oester was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2014.
