CINCINNATI (AP) — Officials with the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum say a mural portraying a game from the 1950s will honor the baseball team’s former home.
Officials tell WLWT-TV (http://bit.ly/1qjRm0n ) that dozens of volunteers and artists from Keep Cincinnati Beautiful will paint a 17-foot-by-50-foot mural of Crosley field, where the Cincinnati Reds played from 1912 to 1970.
Work on the mural, which started Monday, is scheduled to be finished in early June.
Replicated foul poles and a replicated light pole have already been erected. The site of the stadium’s bases will also be marked. A new plaza will also commemorate the site.
Funding for the mural will come in part through the selling of personalized bricks.
A self-guided tour map will be available once the project is finished.
