What does it mean to activate the membership and how do I activate it?

Activating your membership gives you access to the full benefits of the Reds Heads Kids Club and ensures that we have your correct contact information to keep you updated on special club news. You will not be able to redeem your free tickets or RSVP for members-only events until you have activated the membership.

How do I RSVP for ballpark experiences?

Go to reds.com/kidsclub and click on the "Reds Heads Portal Login" tab. Once inside the portal, follow the directions to RSVP for your specific events using your seven (7) digit code on the inside-front cover of the Reds Heads Scorebook.

Choose your dates carefully as once you make your selection, you will not be able to change it. After you register for an event, you will be emailed the ticket. You must print that ticket and bring it with you to the experience or have the ability to display the ticket on your mobile phone. You'll also need to bring your scorebook or membership card to be scanned for entry. If you are RSVP'ing for multiple members, you will need to go through the process using each code individually.

Reds Heads are allowed to RSVP for one type of event each year:

  • One (1) Autograph Session
  • One (1) Q & A Session

Do I have to pay for any of the ballpark experiences? For the experiences that happen on the field (i.e. Run the Bases), Reds Heads members must have a valid game ticket in order to participate. For Autograph Sessions, Reds Heads members receive free admission and any accompanying family, friends or guardians will be required to pay a half-price Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame admission fee ($5). The Reds Heads Q&A Session has free admission for both members and accompanying guests and do not require a game ticket.

If I am taking my Reds Heads member to a ballpark experience and a sibling or friend who is not a Reds Heads member wants to attend, is that ok?

We keep all ballpark experiences exclusive to Reds Heads members. Therefore siblings or friends who are not members are not able to participate in the experiences. We encourage siblings and friends join one of our fan clubs as well so they too can take part in all the fun!

How do the Autograph Sessions work?

The Autograph Sessions will take place in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame located on Joe Nuxhall Way. There is one player at each autograph session, and we will not be able to announce that player until approximately 24 hours before the event. We will not have the player remain at the event for late arrivals, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start time to ensure that you meet the player and get his autograph. We recommend arriving early to allow time to find parking and walking. The member's RSVP event ticket is required for participation.

Who gets chosen for the Reds Heads Run-On and other on-field activities?

Every Reds Heads member who has activated their membership is automatically entered into a drawing for these memorable experiences. If you are chosen, a representative from the Reds will contact you at least one week in advance of the event to provide you with all the important details.

What is the Reds Heads Scorebook?

The Reds Heads Scorebooks contains each member's membership card with his/her unique seven (7) digit code on both the card and inside-front cover which can be used to activate your membership, redeem your free tickets, and RSVP for ballpark experiences. You can also earn stamps for attending games and completing the activities specified in the booklet. The more stamps you earn, the more prizes you receive.

What if my child loses their Reds Heads scorebook, membership card or other items?

Unfortunately we cannot replace lost or stolen items. You will have the option to purchase a replacement Scorebook for $20. Items from the kits cannot be sold individually. Additionally, stamps in the Reds Heads Scorebook cannot be replaced if the book is lost.
