In thinking about Great American Ball Park through the winter, photographer Michael E. Keating chose to make photographs in black-and-white, a classic look that conveys a mood.

First, I have a confession to make.

I have a passion for politics – otherwise, without a complete and utter fascination with politics at all levels, how I could stand to be a journalist covering it for 40 years?

But my first love is baseball, the greatest game ever conceived by the human mind. A thing of beauty. Always has been, always will be. And, in 22 days, it all begins again, with Cincinnati’s unique holiday, Opening Day.

  In the first half of the 1900s racism and Jim Crow laws kept African-American baseball players from being on the same teams as white players. So in 1920 the Negro National League was formed, soon followed  by other rival Negro Leagues. An exhibit now on display at the Galleries at Sinclair in Dayton, Ohio, Shades of Greatness, is the first collaborative art exhibition inspired by the history of Negro Leagues Baseball.

Reds Hall of Fame and Museum

The Reds started the first professional baseball team in 1869, so without a doubt there's a lot of history surrounding them. The Reds Hall of Fame opens an exhibit today, Kings of the Queen City, which showcases the team's greatest moments and biggest names.

The centerpiece of the exhibit is a graphic timeline covering 145 years of Reds history.  The timeline also has an interactive touch-screen screen monitor with audio and video clips.
