Dear Reds Fans and Friends,
On behalf of the Cincinnati Reds and the Reds Community Fund, it is our privilege to share the 2016 Reds Community Report with you.
These pages include the faces, facts and figures that helped make for another unforgettable year of Reds baseball throughout the community. The report also features highlights from our first year serving as hosts of the RBI World Series, a two-plus week international event that included baseball, softball, community service and the experience of a lifetime for more than 360 boys and girls.
The RBI World Series showcased our incredible P&G Cincinnati MLB Youth Academy which hosted all three World Series division championship games. The World Series also featured visits from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred and recently inducted National Baseball Hall of Fame member and Cincinnati native, Ken Griffey Jr.
2016 also included countless memories from dozens of programs and partnerships at Great American Ball Park and throughout Reds Country. These connections wouldn't be possible without the efforts of the Reds front office, the staff and boards of the Reds Community Fund and the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Reds Diversity Advisory Board.
We hope that you enjoy our Community Report and we thank you for your ongoing involvement. Please don't hesitate to contact us with feedback or questions.
