CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame & Museum’s 2015 bobblehead series, presented by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Reds 1990 World Series Championship team.

The series concludes in August with right fielder Paul O’Neill. In the 1990 National League Championship Series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, O’Neill led all Reds starters with his .471 batting average and drove in both runs for the 2-1 victory in the pivotal second game. The bobblehead depicts O’Neill in his classic batting pose.

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame beginning Saturday, August 1 at 10 a.m. and will be available Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of August, while supplies last.

The five bobbleheads in the series feature a different member of the 1990 World Series team in a classic pose that highlights an iconic moment:

• April: Todd Benzinger (now available only to museum members)

• May: Joe Oliver (now available only to museum members)

• June: Billy Hatcher (now available only to All-Star, MVP and World Champion museum members)

• July: Tom Browning (now available only to All-Star, MVP and World Champion museum members)

• August: Paul O’Neill
