Since announcing the 2019 season would be his last in January, the Hall of Fame broadcaster took multiple opportunities to reflect on things like: his favorite moments, what Cincinnati has meant to him, how he feels about retirement, and what he thinks of modern-day baseball.

The Reds and ballparks across the country used the 2019 season to pay their respects to the longtime man-behind-the-mic for Cincinnati with video board tributes and even pieces of the ballpark themselves.

Though the tributes were appreciated, Brennaman’s original plan was to go out quietly at the end of the 2018 season. However, the team found out about his humble plans and convinced him to come back for one last go-round.
