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 to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum that are designed to enhance the overall fan experience. The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is closed from November 2018 until mid-March 2019 as it undergoes these upgrades. The museum will reopen in March with a ribbon-cutting ceremony prior to 2019 Reds Opening Day.
