CINCINNATI (August 1, 2018) - The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2018 bobblehead program in August, celebrating "Mr. Perfect's" infamous rooftop visit in Chicago. 

A World Series Champion, Major League All-Star, and the only Red to pitch a perfect game, Browning pieced together an illustrious major league career. In addition to his stardom in Cincinnati, Browning also made a name for himself in Chicago. Browning earned the name "Rooftop Tommy", when he took a mid-game stroll to a rooftop across the street from Wrigley Field and tipped his cap to the players and fans below, creating an unforgettable moment in Reds history.
  
The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Friday, August 3 at 10 a.m., and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of August, while supplies last.
