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.

The start of baseball season is practically upon us, with downtown Cincinnati’s Fountain Square serving up an evening of Reds-related festivities on Saturday. Monday is practically citywide holiday, when thousands of people turn out for the Reds Opening Day Parade. This year, Frank Robinson, former Reds outfielder and Hall of Famer, will be the Grand Marshall. Bronson Arroyo, starting pitcher for the Reds will be in the Parade as well. To add to the celebration, here is a sampling of baseball-themed art available at Fabulous Frames & Art!
