Hall of Fame fodder

Tom Browning likes to say he was "perfect for one hour and 52 minutes of my life".

The former Reds pitcher, who tossed the only perfect game in club history on September 16, 1988, will be afforded yet another opportunity to relive that rare achievement this weekend when he is inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame along with Lee May and Tom Seaver.

Festivities begin at 4 p.m. on Wednesday at the Reds Hall of Fame with the unveiling of the plaques for each of the inductees. Browning and May are expected to attend.

The Reds Hall of Fame will host a "meet and greet" with fans from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday. Several Reds HOF members will be on hand to pose for photographs. But, the press release says they will not be signing autographs.

Browning, May and Seaver will be officially enshrined into the Reds Hall of Fame in a pre-game ceremony prior to Sunday's game.

Festivities conclude with a gala at the Hyatt Regency downtown at 6 p.m. on Sunday.
