This large gallery combines an opportunity to learn more about great Reds players with the chance to engage in the experience of being "on the field." The gallery is divided into four sections: Fielding, Hitting and Running, Pitching and Catching, and Managing. Each space includes memorabilia, graphics and large photos of outstanding Reds in each of these categories. Interactive components allow the visitor to try their hand at fielding and pitching. You leap the wall to make a catch and you throw off a regulation mound to a strike zone 60 feet 6 inches away.

Video kiosks throughout the gallery highlight a Reds player describing the keys to being a successful pitcher (Tom Browning), catcher (Johnny Bench), hitter (Sean Casey) and fielder (Barry Larkin). A dugout scene (featuring a dugout bench from Riverfront Stadium) features a life-size figure of Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson and a chance to hear Sparky's thoughts on the Big Red Machine.
