Reds Hall of Fame celebrates Tom Browning’s infamous rooftop visit with its very own bobblehead

Bobbleheads available Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays in August

CINCINNATI (August 3, 2018) — The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2018 bobblehead program in August, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Tom Browning’s infamous rooftop visit in Chicago.

A World Series Champion, Major League All-Star, and the only Reds player to pitch a perfect game, Browning pieced together an illustrious major league career including induction into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2006.

In addition to his stardom in Cincinnati, Browning made a name for himself in Chicago earning the name “Rooftop Tommy” when he took a mid-game stroll in 1993 to a rooftop across the street from Wrigley Field. Browning’s stunt was captured on camera as he tipped his cap to the players and fans below, creating an unforgettable moment in Reds history.

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Friday, August 3 and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of August, 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 (now available only with museum membership)

• May: Ernie Lombardi (now available only with museum membership)

• June: Johnny Vander Meer (now available only with museum membership)

• July: Adam Dunn (now available only with museum membership)

• 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. To become a member, please visit RedsMuseum.orgfor more information or call (513) 765-7926.
