MAY 2019: PAT MORAN

JUNE 2019: JOE NUXHALL

JULY 2019: GUS BELL

David "Gus" Bell was a fixture in the Reds' outfield for nine seasons. In his first year as a Red, Gus belted 30 home runs, collected 105 RBI, tallied 102 runs and finished the season with a .300 batting average. During his breakout year, he was elected to the National League All-Star roster where he would start in center field in front of his home crowd at Crosley Field. Bell would go on to have three more All-Star appearances for the Reds in 1954, 1956 and 1957. In 1956, Bell contributed 29 round-trippers to the then-Major League record-tying 221 home runs the Reds hit during the season. In addition to his strong bat, Bell was one of the most gifted defensive outfielders of his era, regularly placing among the National League's leaders in putouts, assists and fewest errors committed.

Gus Bell's baseball legacy was carried on by his son Buddy and grandsons David and Mike. The Bells are one of only four three-generation families to play in the Major Leagues, and Gus, Buddy and Mike are the only three-generation family to play for the Reds. Gus Bell was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1964.

The Gus Bell bobblehead is included in the following Reds Hall of Fame and Museum membership levels:

  • Reds All-Star (Family)
  • Most Valuable Partner (Friends & Family)
  • World Champion

* One bobblehead per membership account.

    AUGUST 2019: VADA PINSON

    Possessing an impressive combination of power and speed, Vada Pinson burst onto the scene in 1958 by belting a grand slam in his second Major League game. A National League All-Star in his first two full seasons (1959 and 1960), Pinson also led the league in doubles in each of those years, and would rank among the league's top ten in this category in eight of his ten full seasons in Cincinnati. He also twice led the league in hits, at-bats and triples, and in 1959, led the league in runs scored. A brilliant defender, Pinson's talents in center field were acknowledged with a Gold Glove Award in 1961.

    Along with Frank Robinson, Pinson helped anchor one of the strongest outfields in the National League -- a group that helped propel the Reds to the league pennant in 1961 and near-pennants in 1962, 1964 and 1965.

    The Vada Pinson bobblehead is included in the following Reds Hall of Fame and Museum membership levels:

    • Reds All-Star (Family)
    • Most Valuable Partner (Friends & Family)
    • World Champion

    * One bobblehead per membership account.

      SEPTEMBER 2019: TED KLUSZEWSKI

      One of the most-popular players in Reds history, Ted Kluszewski remains the most enduring symbol of Reds baseball in the 1950s. Known for his bulging biceps, a physical characteristic that forced him to cut the sleeves off his jersey to allow him to swing his bat freely, "Big Klu" was one of the great sluggers and most gifted fielders of his era. A Red from 1947 to 1957, Kluszewski was an All-Star each season from 1953 to 1956, and led NL first basemen in fielding percentage each season from 1951 to 1955.

      Kluszewski's 1954 season stands as one of the finest offensive seasons in the club's history. He hit .326, led the NL in home runs with 49, RBI with 141 and finished second in voting for the NL's MVP award.

      For his career, Kluszewski hit 251 home runs in a Reds uniform -- a total bested by only four players in franchise history. Inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1962, his uniform #18 was retired by the Reds in 1998. On Opening Day 2003, Klu's statue was the first to be installed at the Crosley Terrace entrance to Great American Ball Park.

      The Ted Kluszewski bobblehead is included in the following Reds Hall of Fame and Museum membership levels:

      • Most Valuable Partner (Friends & Family)
      • World Champion

      * One bobblehead per membership account.
