AVENUE GROUNDS (1876-79)

LEAGUE PARK (1884-1901)

PALACE OF THE FANS (1902-11)

Following a major fire, the Reds rebuilt the main grandstand of League Park in 1902. Today, baseball historians refer to the updated facility as Palace of the Fans. The park featured an illustrious grandstand with pillars and columns carved by hand, as well as 19 fashion boxes (much like opera boxes) and inexpensive field-level seating.

CROSLEY FIELD (1912-70)

Originally named Redland Field and renamed in 1934, Crosley Field was the first Reds ballpark to feature a double-decked grandstand. The facility, located at the corner of Western Avenue and Findlay Street, was the site of baseball's first night game and hosted Cincinnati's first World Series Championship team.

RIVERFRONT STADIUM/CINERGY FIELD (1970-2002)

The Reds shared Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field with the NFL's Bengals until 1999. The multipurpose stadium, which could seat approximately 56,000 fans, was considered state-of-the-art upon its opening in June 1970. The facility hosted five pennant winners and three World Series Championship teams.

GREAT AMERICAN BALL PARK (2003-PRESENT)

On July 7, 2000, Great American Insurance Company, one of the oldest insurance companies in the United States, and the Cincinnati Reds, America's first professional baseball team, joined forces by announcing a 30-year agreement under which the new home of the Reds would be called Great American Ball Park. The facility, with room for more than 42,000 fans, includes a variety of seating and dining options, state-of-the-art sound and scoreboard systems and an array of historical elements scattered throughout.
