The oldest professional team in baseball and 1990 World Champions play at Great American Ball Park from April through October. Fans in the cheap seats get views of the Ohio River, the nineteenth-century mansions across the way in Kentucky, and the rugged hills farther south. One of the National League's newer ballparks, the Reds' $320 million marvel manages to look both retro and modern, with its brick facade, white metal light towers, and sleek black Batter's Eye
Pavilion in center field. The stadium seats just over 42,000.

Professional baseball was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and the team is the heart and soul of the city. A visit to Great American Ballpark is a trip through the tradition and glory of the Reds - from the Big Red Machine of the 1970's, to the very roots of the Great American Pastime. Just one visit to the park and you'll be longing to hear Marty cry out "...and this one belongs to the Reds!"
