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

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.

Happy 100th Anniversary Crosley Field!

Rites of Spring: Findlay Market Opening Day Parade/Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Game vs. Miami Marlins

OPENING DAY! OPENING DAY! OPENING DAY! What an exciting phrase for baseball fans everywhere, especially here in the Queen City where the Reds (stockings/legs) have been thrilling spectators, initially as amateurs and then as the first-ever professionals, since 1866. Another long-standing tradition is the Findlay Market Opening Day Parade*, dating to 1920 and now in its 93rd year. Starting at 1:00 and ending at approximately 3:00, the parade will wend its way from Findlay Market to Fountain Square downtown. Former Reds player Aaron Boone is set to lead the festivities as Grand Marshal. The Reds take on the Miami Marlins at 4:10 at Great American Ball Park but the city-wide celebration will go on long into the night.

We sifted through our inventory and came up with a diverse assortment of Reds and Cincinnati themed artwork, all of which we carry at our downtown location (the assortment may vary at our other locations). Enjoy, and Go Reds!

* Check back tomorrow for the Parade route and parking details.
