The Cincinnati Reds have released the promotions schedule for the 2021 season, and it’s predictably full of bobblehead goodness.

The Reds will give away five different bobbleheads on its Super Saturday game days at Great American Ball Park. Including a Barry Larkin dual bobblehead on Sept. 4 that celebrates the 25th anniversary of Larkin becoming baseball’s first 30/30 shortstop. Larkin has joined FOX Sports Ohio as a Reds color analyst for 2021.

Other bobbles include likenesses of infielder Mike Moustakas, outfielder Shogo Akiyama, mascot Gapper, and a triple bobblehead featuring home run kings Ted Kluszewski, George Foster and Eugenio Suárez.

The 2021 regular season also features 11 Fireworks Fridays, an Eric Davis Funko Pop collectible, tote bags, posters, hats and more. See the full promotions schedule.

The Reds also are taking nominations for the First Responders and Hometown Heroes honors. The programs recognize healthcare workers and military members during the first and second innings, respectively. Nominate someone for First Responders or Hometown Heroes.

Like other sports venues, Great American Ball Park is preparing to welcome fans back to the stands after a 2020 season that saw cancelled games and few in-person supporters. Outdoor stadiums may resume activity at a maximum capacity of 30%, provided that safety protocols continue. Great American Ball Park’s capacity is a little over 42,200.

Fans who aren’t quite ready to return to the stadium can still be there in spirit by purchasing a photo cutout of themselves that will be placed in the stands. A new Fan Cutouts MVP package includes the cutout along with a bobblehead, hat, license plate holder and can cooler. If purchased before March 24, the cutout is guaranteed to be in the stands for Opening Day. Proceeds from the $100 package benefit the Reds Community Fund.

The Reds' Opening day is April 1. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there will be no traditional parade and celebration at Findlay Market.

Reds season tickets and single-game tickets are on sale now.
