COVINGTON, Ky. - Want your picture taken with Mr. Redlegs?
 
The Cincinnati Reds mascot is currently sitting on benches at the Devou Park Overlook and on Riverside Drive, and he will be there throughout the Reds’ 2019 season. (Yes, that’s two places at once, but like Santa Claus he can be anywhere and everywhere he wants to be at the same time, and in fact he will soon be sitting at 25 locations throughout the region.)
 
The sculpture-and-bench creations are part of a season-long promotion by the Reds to celebrate the team’s 150th anniversary as a professional club.
 
At each location, Mr. Redlegs is wearing a different throwback uniform with descriptions telling about the style and history.
 
The Devou Park figure features the 1969 team uniform, while the one on Riverside Drive features the 1869 uniform.
 
The team will eventually post a map of the locations of all 25 figures atwww.reds.com/150, which currently features a lot of information about the anniversary.
