Great American Ball Park

Located in downtown Cincinnati, the Great American Ball Park is home to one of Major League Baseball's oldest and most iconic teams - the Cincinnati Reds. The ballpark sits on 29 acres of land and seats 42,271 fans. Its design perfectly combines classic and modern ballpark.

After playing for more than 30 years at Riverfront Stadium, eventually renamed Cinergy Field, the Reds moved into the Great American Ball Park. Their first game in the new park was on March 31, 2003, against upstate rivals, the Cleveland Indians.

Since opening night in 2003, the Great American Ball Park has been home to many memorable moments. Those moments have included Jay Bruce's homer that clinched the division for the Reds in 2010, hosting the All-star Game in 2015, and pitcher Homer Bailey's second career no-hitter in 2013.

At the main entrance, fans are greeted by statues of legendary players like Joe Nuxhall, Ernie Lombardi, and Frank Robinson. Once inside the ballpark, fans will notice the power stacks in the right-center field. These two smokestacks are reminiscent of the steamboats commonly seen venturing down the Ohio River during the early 20th century.

Another signature feature of the ballpark is what is referred to as "the gap," a 35-foot wide opening between home plate and third base. The gap is part of what makes the Great American Ball Park so unique. It offers fans a spectacular view of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River. Day or night, the ballpark's design gives fans a great view of the game and the city.

Some of the additions to the ballpark over the years, especially the fan experience, have included the riverboat deck past center field, the Bally's Sports Club, and the TriHealth Family Zone. The TriHealth Family Zone is perfect for families and consists of a playground, batting cages, a nursing suite, and much more.

If you're looking for the complete baseball experience, you'll need to check out the Reds Hall of Fame Museum. The museum is connected to Great American Ball Park. It pays homage to some of the most incredible Reds to play the game, including Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, and Barry Larkin. Multiple exhibits, displays, memorabilia, and artifacts provide fans with a closer look into the rich history of Cincinnati Reds baseball.

Whether you're a casual baseball fan, local to the area, or just passing through, catching a game at the Great American Ball Park or the rare concert is a must.
