It isn’t often when a stadium inherits a legendary team, but when it does, it takes care to be reminiscent of that team’s distant past, including one of its’ legendary stadiums. For the Great American Ball Park, the tradition of the Cincinnati Reds is such that this modern stadium harkens back across the vast decades to Crosley Field, both in motif, decorations and the search for Reds parking in downtown Cincinnati. Located on the shores of the Ohio River, the stadium embeds the city’s heritage as a former riverboat mecca in its architecture. For instance, the “Power Stacks,” smokestacks like those on an old riverboat, launch fireworks after a home run, and fire blows out when the visiting team’s batter is struck out. Meanwhile, near the primary entrance of the stadium, a sculpture named “Reds Legends of Crosley Field” includes famous players caught in bronze and stopped in time. But the real game doesn’t stop if you don’t have a parking spot. If you book your parking space before the game, ParkWhiz can take care of your Reds parking issues for you.
The name “Great American Ball Park” is appropriate for the country’s first professional baseball team, even if it is officially named after an insurance company. Cincinnati’s home team has a storied past:. The Reds won the World Series in 1919, 1940, 1975, 1976 and 1990, and won National League pennants in 1939, 1961, 1970 and 1972. Having produced and nurtured baseball talents like Gary Nolan, Pete Rose and Don Gullett, it’s no wonder the Reds have had such success over the years. Unlike most teams, the Reds have stood by Cincinnati since their inception as the Cincinnati Red Stockings in 1882. After the dawn of the 20th century, they changed their name to the Redlegs, then back to the Reds after five years.
The Great American Ball Park also features a 217-foot LED scoreboard, the Riverfront Club restaurant on the stadium’s third level, the Rose Garden and the Spirit of Baseball, a bas relief sculpture that represents a young man’s dream to be a baseball player in the style of ancient carvings of heroes and legends. Though the game itself is legendary, finding a sweet Reds parking spot doesn’t have to be, thanks to ParkWhiz.
