2018 Reds HOF Collectible Bobblehead for May: Ernie Lombardi

Bobbleheads available Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays in May

CINCINNATI (May 1, 2018) — The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2018 bobblehead program in May with Ernie Lombardi, the 1938 NL MVP.

A five-time All-Star for the Reds, Lombardi boasted a .311 batting average with the Reds over the course of his 10 years with the team. Known for his hitting ability, Lombardi was also a gifted defensive catcher, able to throw runners out without leaving his crouch position.

He was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in its inaugural class in 1958 and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame through the Veterans Committee in 1986. 

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Friday, May 4 at 10 a.m., and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of May, while supplies last.

Only 6,000 bobbleheads have been produced and there is a limit of one bobblehead per visitor per day.

The bobblehead series continues through September with a different Reds Hall of Famer available each month:

• April: Chris Sabo (available only with museum membership)

• May: Ernie Lombardi

• June: Johnny Vander Meer

• July: Adam Dunn

• August: Tom Browning

• September: Johnny Bench

Admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors, and $6 for active military/veterans. Children four and younger are free.

The best way to ensure a bobblehead is to join the museum as a member.
