The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum and City Gospel Mission are launching a brick campaign to support the creation and installation of historical markers to commemorate the site of Crosley Field, the home of the Cincinnati Reds from 1912 to 1970.
The bricks will reside at the Crosley Field Historic Site at the City Gospel Mission in Cincinnati's West End. The building is at the corner of Dalton Ave. and Findlay St., which is the approximate location of Crosley Field's first base side grandstand and dugout.
A donation to the campaign is perfect for fans wanting to preserve a memory of Reds history at Crosley Field.
Bricks are available in two sizes (4"x8" and 8"x8") with prices starting at $175.
Fans have many options to personalize the bricks and can be ordered online at RedsMuseum.org/bricks or by calling 1-855-FAN-BRIX.
A replica of the memorial brick is included as a keepsake with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The fundraising campaign includes a limited number of bricks and each donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law through the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, a 501 (c)(3) organization.
