Posted by Trina Edwards - email

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - A renovated baseball field in Fairfield will soon be known as 'Marty and Joe Field' after it is dedicated Monday afternoon.

The field is being named for longtime Reds broadcasters Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall. Nuxhall passed away in November of 2007.

The project, in conjunction with Scotts, the City of Fairfield and the Fairfield Youth Baseball Association, culminates a series of projects at Waterworks Park, including the Joe Nuxhall Pavilion and Joe Nuxhall statue.

The field is home to the Reds Community Fund's Rookie Success League of Butler County.

The dedication is set for noon on Monday.
