The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is offering fans the opportunity to sponsor a brick to commemorate the five All-Star Games held in Cincinnati and support the Hall of Fame's efforts to preserve and promote Reds history.
The new All-Star Legacy Plaza, located within the tree grove next to the Hall of Fame entrance outside Great American Ball Park, is comprised of five sections commemorating the 1938, 1953, 1970, 1988 and 2015 All-Star Games in Cincinnati. A limited number of legacy bricks will be offered in each section.
"With this year's All-Star Game, Cincinnati becomes one of the few cities to have had the privilege of hosting five Midsummer Classics," said Rick Walls, Reds Hall of Fame & Museum executive director. "The creation of the All-Star Legacy Plaza commemorates all five games and provides fans the opportunity to link their name, message or special memory to this new addition to the ballpark."
Bricks are available in two sizes (4"x8" and 8"x8") with prices starting at $175. Fans have many options to personalize the bricks including messages, logos and which All-Star section the brick will be located.
Bricks can be ordered online at RedsMuseum.org/bricks or by calling 1-855-FAN-BRIX.
A brick sponsorship includes an installed legacy brick, a complimentary replica brick with affixed commemorative plaque and an individually numbered keepsake certificate suitable for framing. Installation of the bricks is currently scheduled for the end of the 2015 season.
