JOE SOMEBODY: In Cincinnati, C. Trent Rosecrans noted Baseball HOFer Joe Morgan was on hand last night at the Reds HOF & Museum for the "unveiling of the Joe Morgan exhibit." The Reds on Sept. 6 will be honoring Morgan with a statue created by artist Tom Tsuchiya. The statue will be the "second of the five statues from the Big Red Machine Reds." Morgan’s '76 Gold Glove Award, his Babe Ruth Crown Award and his '72 All-Star Game MVP trophy "stand among several jerseys and bats" on display. Morgan said that his most "prized possession" on display was his '64 Texas League MVP Trophy (CINCINNATI.com, 3/11).
WELL-OILED MACHINE: FS Ohio GM Francois McGillicuddy said that ad space for Reds games "is going quickly," and the net is "on track" to sell out 90% of Reds games inventory by Opening Day. He added that advertising demand has been "so strong" that FS Ohio has been able to "increase ad rates" by an average of 20% from last season (BIZJOURNALS.COM, 3/6).
