Japanese American Community Day

For the first time ever the Cincinnati Reds celebrated the Japanese culture of Cincinnati by holding a Japanese American Day on Sunday, July 25, 2021. The day also included the presentation of the Japanese Community Day Community Advocate Award presented by TriHealth, which recognizes business representatives, community leaders, and civil servants in our community who advocate connection and inclusion. The recipient was Tom Tsuchiya, a well-known sculptor around the Cincinnati area whose work Reds fans are familiar with. His work includes the bronze sculptures around Great American Ball Park of Reds legends Ted Kluszewski, Ernie Lombardi, Joe Nuxhall, Frank Robinson, Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, and Tony Perez. Most recently he completed the statue of Marian Spencer, who led desegregation efforts in the city of Cincinnati. She is the first female in Cincinnati’s history to have a statue made for her.
