The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum continues its collectible bobblehead series with the release of the Jim O'Toole bobblehead.
The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame beginning 10 a.m. Friday and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout June while supplies last.
The bobblehead depicts O'Toole (Reds Hall of Fame class of 1970) in his follow-through after having delivered a pitch in the first game of the 1961 World Series at Yankee Stadium. He won a career-high 19 games in 1961 including five consecutive games in September which helped the Reds win the National League pennant.
O'Toole will sign
autographs for fans from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at the Reds Hall of
Fame & Museum. The signing is free with museum admission. He will also
serve as the honorary captain for the Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies game
at 7:10 p.m. Friday.
The bobblehead series continues each month through September with a different Reds legend in a classic pose that highlights an iconic image or moment from their Reds career:
• May: Sparky Anderson (only available through the purchase of a membership)
• June: Jim O'Toole
• July: Eric Davis
• August: Barry Larkin
• September: Pete Rose
Admission to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors and $6 for active military/veterans.
