It's the 1959 season at Crosley Field in Cincinnati, the Reds hosting the eventual National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers. First baseman Norm Larker is at bat for the visitors; righthander Bob Mabe is on the mound. Located at the corner of Findlay and Western in the city's West End, this is a colorful and cozy ballpark - less than 400 feet to any outfield fence. And there are no warning tracks, just rising inclines to alert players of imminent contact with a wall. First opened in 1912 as Redland Field and renamed in 1934 for team owner Powell Crosley, it was the site of the first night game in major league history (May 24, 1935). With Riverfront Stadium ready for occupancy, the Reds played their final game here on June 24, 1970.

Measuring 15 3/4" tall x 36" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Crosley Field Matinee, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Andy Jurinko, from whose original painting the fine art print has been exactingly reproduced onto acid-free paper, which is noted for its long-term archival abilities.
