The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is honoring more than 100 native Cincinnatians in the new exhibition "Hometown Reds: Local Boys Who Played for the Cincinnati Reds."

The exhibit features jerseys, game-used equipment and memorabilia dating back 145 years to 1869 when Charlie Gould became the first Cincinnatian to play for the hometown team.

"If you are from the Cincinnati area and played baseball at any age, you probably dreamed of playing for the Reds," said Rick Walls, executive director of the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum. "Our new exhibit honors the 104 players whose dreams became a reality."

The exhibit includes a player mural along with a graphic map highlighting the towns in southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana from which the hometown Reds hailed. 

Visitors to the exhibit will see personal recollections from some of the hometown Reds through new video interviews that run continuously in the exhibit space. 

Fans can explore "Hometown Reds: Local Boys Who Played for the Cincinnati Reds" along with the other new exhibit for this year -- "Kings of the Queen City."

The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday.

Starting on Opening Day (March 31) and running through October, the museum will be open seven days a week with extended hours on game days.
