From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame was instituted in 1958 to recognize the career of former Cincinnati Reds players, managers and front-office executives.

The Reds first teamed up with the Cincinnati Chapter of Commerce in 1958 to promote the inductions, which were voted on by Reds fanatics. Nevertheless, no induction took place in 1985, and starting in 1989, the discontinuation of the ceremonies lasted for nine years.

In 1998, Reds executive John Allen revived the inductions and turned over voting to the local chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America, which also votes annually for the team’s Most Valuable Player and pitcher as well.

There is also a museum that opened September 25, 2004 next to Great American Ball Park. It has more than 15,000 square feet (1,400 m2) of exhibit space on two floors and is open year-round. The museum showcases such unique items such as World Series trophies (from 1975, 1976 and 1990), the scorebook from the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings (baseball's first professional team), MVP trophies of Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan, a gallery of the Reds Hall of Fame plaques and other items.

Rick Walls took over the role of museum executive director on Aug. 1, 2007, for Greg Rhodes (the museum's first executive director), who remained with the Cincinnati Reds as team historian.
