The National Baseball Hall of Fame announced Tuesday that the new season will begin on Wednesday, June 17, 2019, with the start of the first day of the regular season.
The 2019 season will be the first of the 10-year cycle of Hall of Famers to take the field.
The first game of the cycle will be on June 10, 2021, against the Minnesota Twins.
This will be followed by the first game on May 30, 2022, against Seattle Mariners.
This year will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Babe Ruth.
In 2018, the Hall of Famer’s No. 1 and No. 2 jerseys will be retired.
The team’s logo, No. 25, will be used throughout the 2019 season.
On Thursday, July 2, the National Baseball Museum in Cincinnati will host the unveiling of the 20th anniversary commemorative coin, commemorating the 20 years of the game, which is a part of the Hall’s 100th-anniversary celebrations.
The team’s Hall of Honor will also be unveiled on Friday, July 5, 2019.
The ceremony will feature the unveiling and presentation of the team’s new plaque honoring the first baseman and the first basemen of the Cincinnati Reds, who won the 1919 World Series.
The new commemorative coins, as well as the plaque, will not be issued for the 2019 campaign.
The National Baseball Foundation, which manages the Hall, announced in February that the 2020 season will mark a 10-season mark for the Hall.
The organization has also announced that it will be honoring the life of former first baseman Willie McCovey, who passed away on May 22, 2021.
McCovey was one of the best hitters of all time and one of baseball’s best players.
He won five Gold Gloves and three Silver Slugger Awards and was a three-time All-Star, a five-time MVP and a four-time Cy Young Award winner.
The Hall will also honor retired pitchers and coaches.
The Hall of Sportsmanship, which also manages the Baseball Hall, has chosen retired pitchers, coaches and managers from the major leagues, college and international level.
The MLB Players Association announced on Tuesday that it would award a lifetime achievement award to a former MLB player.
The award will be named for a player who won three Gold Gloves, a Silver Slugter, a Triple Crown and a World Series championship, and was selected to be inducted into the Baseball Writers Association of America’s Hall.
The award is the first in the award-winning Players’ Hall of Excellence, and will be presented to retired player and former MLB pitcher Rick Reuschel of Milwaukee, who was inducted last month.
In addition, the Baseball Foundation will be presenting the award to former MLB manager Joe Torre, who coached the Cincinnati Redbirds to a World War II championship in 1957.
The Baseball Writers of America will also award a Lifetime Achievement Award to former pitcher Tim Raines, who retired after the 2014 season after guiding the Baltimore Orioles to three World Series titles and a berth in the World Series in 2016.
A former National Basketball Association player, former NHL player and current National Football League player are also in the running for the award.
