New Exhibit Celebrates 1919 Reds
Now Open
Baseball season is in full swing and and so is a new BCM exhibit that celebrates the 1919 Cincinnati Reds. While the "Black Sox" betting scandal had left this team somewhat forgotten, our new exhibit brings them to life and corrects the false notion that this team was not deserving of its title and a coveted place in baseball history. Exhibit is included with museum admission.
