Deep in the heart of Cincinnati lies Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds. This unique stadium is blessed with a number of striking features. The Pepsi Power Stacks located in the stands area pay homage to the steamboats that used to be a common sight on the Ohio River. Whenever an opposing team's batter is struck out, the stacks emit smoke, while fireworks are launched whenever the Reds score a home run.
The third largest scoreboard in MLB can be found within Great American Ball Park, as can a number of commanding statues and monuments. The Spirit of Baseball is a limestone statue that stretches to an impressive 50 feet tall depicts a young boy holding a baseball bat. Above him, a batter, catcher and fielder sit in the clouds.
Great American Ball Park also features the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum. The history of the Red's baseball team is retold through galleries and a number of slick multimedia presentations.
