Rose and his ‘Hit Collection’ at Redsfest
Published 11:28 pm Wednesday, November 16, 2016
CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Reds Hall of Famer Pete Rose will appear at FOX Sports Ohio Redsfest presented by PNC Bank on Dec. 2 & 3, 2016 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.
Pete will attend Redsfest on behalf of the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum to support the “Pete Rose Hit Collection,” a fundraising campaign for the bronze sculpture of Pete that will be unveiled outside Great American Ball Park on June 17, 2017.
Pete Rose Hit Collection
The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to present the Pete Rose Hit Collection. Pete has signed 4,256 baseballs, each of which has been stamped with the official Pete Rose Hit Collection logo and that baseball’s unique hit number.
Only one baseball is available for each of Pete’s 4,256 hits. Each baseball will be delivered in a deluxe display that includes an exclusive photo collage and certificate of ownership that references the baseball’s unique hit number and date.
By purchasing a Hit Collection baseball, you become the owner of that hit and help support the Pete Rose sculpture project.
For a limited time, fans who buy one of the Pete Rose Hit Collection balls from now until the end of Redsfest will get to meet Pete at Redsfest and have their photo taken with him.
“This innovative campaign allows fans to own a ball representing one of Pete’s hits, which helps to fund his statue,” said Rick Walls, executive director of the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum.
“We are excited to have Pete in the Hall of Fame area at Redsfest so he can meet those who are supporting the campaign.”
Full details about the Pete Rose Hit Collection are available at redsmuseum.org or by calling (513) 765-7923.
