The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is celebrating the team's greatest players, the upcoming All-Star Game and fans with two new exhibits opening at 10 a.m. Thursday.

One features Tony Perez, a key figure and leader of the Big Red Machine.  

It's a great opportunity for fans, particularly younger ones, to learn about his accomplishments as part of the team.  The exhibit includes a timeline of his career and a video tribute to the "Mayor of Riverfront."  

This display also previews a Tony Perez statue unveiling in August.

The other exhibit, “Stars of the Queen City," celebrates the 100 All-Stars throughout Reds history.

There are pictures and artifacts for every player from the first Midsummer classic in 1933 to last year's game, which featured current player Devin Mesoraco.  

Items also will be displayed from the four All-Star games played in Cincinnati, the last game being 1988.
