Hall of Famer hits Hamilton

Updated: Mar 20

Hamilton (OH) – On the precipice of the 2024 season, retired Hall of Fame Cincinnati Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman talks baseball and more in Hamilton.

The Fitton Center for Creative Arts presents An Evening with Marty Brennaman Saturday, March 23.

Brennaman was the radio play-by-play voice of the Reds for 46 seasons before retiring at the end of the 2019 campaign. The first 31 of those years he shared the microphone with the Ol’ Lefthander - Joe Nuxhall - the Hamilton native who became the youngest player to appear in a Major League game at the age of 15.

Brennaman will spend the first half of the evening sharing stories from his life and career. While best known for his work with the Reds – including historic calls of the Big Red Machine, Pete Rose’s hit #4,192, Tom Browning’s perfect game, the Wire-to-Wire 1990 World Series champs and Jay Bruce’s division-clinching homer in 2010 – he also broadcast minor league baseball as well as ABA, NBA and NCAA basketball. He’s also got a theater background and has done extensive commercial work.

After intermission – should it be called a seventh-inning stretch? – Marty returns for a Q&A. With a twist.

Fans may submit questions prior to the event via email at; please put ASK MARTY in the subject line and include your name and part of town with your question.

The Fitton Center partnered with the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum Presented by Dinsmore and the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League to present the event.

The Reds Hall opens its newest exhibition – The Long Ball: A Home Run History of the Reds – on Friday, March 22.

The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League celebrates Opening Day Saturday, April 20; the annual JNML parade steps off from Sacred Heart Church in Fairfield and marches to the Miracle League Fields where players will be introduced in an on-field ceremony.

Tickets for An Evening with Marty Brennaman are sold out, but to get on the waiting list in case any become available, please call 513-863-8873, ext. 110.

The Fitton Center for Creative Arts is located at 101 S. Monument Avenue on the Riverfront in downtown Hamilton, Ohio.
