When they stepped to the plate in 1869, the Cincinnati Red Stockings were baseball’s first professional team. During this 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds are celebrating their 150th anniversary!

The Grand Prize winner will join Ohio’s 529 Plan and the Reds for an award presentation prior to the Sept. 25 game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
