The Powel Crosley Jr. Award

In 1934, motivated by civic pride and a love of baseball, entrepreneur and industrialist Powel Crosley, Jr. purchased a financially strapped Cincinnati Reds franchise. Crosley brought stability and innovation to the Reds. During his nearly three decades of stewardship, the Reds organization introduced night baseball to the Major Leagues, saw the expansion of its home ballpark, solidified the grand Cincinnati Opening Day tradition, hosted two All-Star games, fielded some of the most memorable teams in club history and strengthened its position as an integral part of the civic and cultural fabric of Greater Cincinnati.

The Powel Crosley, Jr. Award honors individuals who have exemplified the Crosley spirit of dedication and devotion to the ongoing success of the Cincinnati Reds during extended careers of service to and achievement with the club. The contributions of these individuals have been vital to the Reds organization sustaining its position of prominence and respect in the game of baseball and the community.
