Hall of Fame Legacy Campaign

As the first pitch was thrown for the 1869 Red Stockings, professional baseball was off and running in Cincinnati. With each team and season came inspiring and compelling characters, amazing athletic achievements, pennant wins and world championships first before hundreds and thousands of people and eventually before millions of fans all over the world.

We are incredibly proud of the rich history of the Cincinnati Reds and are committed to keeping the memories alive as we engage more fans each year. And this is why the 150th Anniversary Legacy Campaign was created. The campaign encompasses comprehensive renovations that were made to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum that are designed to enhance the overall fan experience. The newly-renovated museum opened its doors in March and fans have been thrilled with the results.
