Ford C. Frick Award Winner Marty Brennaman is the sole member of the Reds Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021 with induction ceremonies Friday August 27th at Great American Ball Park. The event will include the on-field Induction Ceremony and a special Reds Alumni Softball Game featuring more than 40 Reds Hall of Famers and former Reds. 

“We can’t think of a better way to honor Marty Brennaman than with one of the largest gatherings of Reds Hall of Famers and alumni from his 46-year broadcasting career,” said Rick Walls, Reds Hall of Fame executive director.

“Moving the Induction events to Great American Ball Park allows fans and former players to celebrate Marty as our newest Hall of Fame inductee.” 

Brennaman joins his former broadcast partner Joe Nuxhall, who was inducted in to the Reds Hall of Fame in 1968. Nuxhall’s broadcast microphone was retired in 2007.
