Dozens Of New Statues Are Hiding All Over Cincinnati And Here’s Where To Find Them
Cincinnati has been home to many firsts throughout history, and the city loves to celebrate these achievements and milestones. As a baseball-loving town, it’s no surprise that Cincinnati was the birthplace of the sport – the Cincinnati Red Stockings were the first professional team in the world! Baseball’s roots run deep in the Queen City, and this year, the team is celebrating its 150th anniversary. The Reds are holding many special events throughout the season to commemorate the occasion, but perhaps the most fun experience is the addition of the Mr. Redlegs Benches all around the city. Dozens of these statues and benches are now hiding all over Cincinnati and we’ll show you what to look for and where to find them.
