Attend a Cincinnati Reds—baseball’s first professional franchise—game to experience a Cincinnati summer tradition on the banks of the Ohio River. Although Cincinnatians’ love of baseball hasn’t changed much over the years, the ballpark has. Johnny Bench and Pete Rose, two Reds greats, didn’t play here—their park was Riverfront Stadium, a less-visually-interesting venue in the same location that was torn down in 2002. The Great American Ball Park was designed so that the Ohio River is a constant visual fixture. You can see it when you sit in the stands. This means that from the Newport Levee in Kentucky, you can watch and hear the crowd.
