Locals who played for the Cincinnati Reds are honored

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Opening day is less that two weeks away but the Reds are already celebrating some of their past players.

A new exhibit opens Friday at the Reds Hall of Fame museum and it features 104 former players who not only played for the Reds, but grew up in this area.
87 of them are from Ohio.  16 are from northern Kentucky and two are from Indiana.
Colin Ethier, special projects manager, said, "Because everyone when they grow up in Cincinnati. Baseball is such a big thing here, to actually be able to play for your hometown team that's something that not many people have the chance to do."

Players like Dave Parker, Barry Larkin, Ken Griffey Junior and Pete Rose are featured.  But there are many others you may not know.  The idea for the exhibit was hatched when a local author approached the museum for help about  Reds born in the area for a book he was writing.
