As a part of the Reds 150th anniversary, the Reds Community Fund will take part in two special field renovation projects in 2019. Historic Ross Park in St. Bernard will receive a new synthetic infield, upgrades to the outfield, plus a renovation of the bleachers, concessions stand and surrounding park. The other project will take place in Northern Kentucky at the Bellevue Vets complex, where the high school field will receive a new synthetic infield and an expanded outfield, along with upgrades to the two adjacent fields.
Both renovated ball fields will feature a seating and press area designed in the spirit of the original home of the Reds, the "Palace of the Fans." MSA Architects will oversee the design and construction of these unique elements.
