A ceremony was held this morning outside the ballpark’s main gates to dedicate the Purple Heart monument located in Crosley Terrace.  The monument, which is dedicated to the recipients of the nation’s oldest military decoration, was installed earlier this season.

Today’s ceremony included local dignitaries from Hamilton County, members of the Reds ownership and front office staff, and dozens of recipients of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.
