Happy 100th Anniversary Crosley Field!

After waiting  six dark and cold-ish months, you’ll have to excuse us if we keep returning to the subject of baseball. It’s kind of a big deal here in the Queen City, where the Reds have been entertaining us for nearly 150 years. Experiencing everything from heartbreak to elation, we’ve stuck together through it all; in the process we’ve formed the longest-standing relationship in the game.

Last Pitch at Crosley Field

For 58 years-from April 11, 1912 until June 24, 1970-we kept the flame alive at the legendary Crosley Field. Generations of Cincinnatians still hold warm memories of days spent sitting in the stands eating hot dogs and downing cold sodas, while their favorite players took to the diamond. Those stands. That diamond.Gone but not forgotten. Reduced to memory but ever-present.
