Free With Regular Price Admission

 

The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2018 bobblehead program in July, celebrating 2018 inductee Adam Dunn.

A two-time All-Star, Dunn boasted a .247 batting average over the course of his eight seasons with the Reds while amassing 270 home runs, one of which traveled 535 feet and landed outside the ballpark. Dunn is also the only Reds player to score 100 runs, drive in 100 runs, and draw 100 walks in a single season more than once. He accomplished this feat back to back in 2004 and 2005, and again in 2007.

Dunn, along former manager Dave Bristol and Big Red Machine pitcher Fred Norman will be honored during 2018 Reds Hall of Fame Induction Weekend presented by PNC, July 21 & 22.

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Sunday, July 1 at 10 a.m., and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of July, while supplies last.

Only 6,000 bobbleheads have been produced and there is a limit of one bobblehead per visitor per day.

The bobblehead series, presented by Dinsmore, continues through September with a different Reds Hall of Famer available each month:
• April: Chris Sabo (now available only with museum membership)
• May: Ernie Lombardi (now available only with museum membership)
• June: Johnny Vander Meer (now available only with museum membership)
• July: Adam Dunn
• August: Tom Browning
• September: Johnny Bench

Admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors, and $6 for active military/veterans. Children four and younger are admitted free.

The best way to ensure a bobblehead is to join the museum as a member. To become a member, please visit RedsMuseum.org for more information or call (513) 765-7926.
