Cincinnati Reds announce next Hall of Fame inductee

Adam Dunn is set to be the next player inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. 

He was picked through the modern player ballot via votes by Reds alumni, select media members and fans. 

Dunn is one of the greatest power hitters in Reds history, clubbing 270 homers as a Red from 2001-08. 

He is fourth on the team’s career list, trailing Johnny Bench, Tony Perez and Frank Robinson. 

Only Robinson and Joey Votto have bettered Dunn’s .520 slugging percentage. 

He will be the 21st outfielder inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame and the 80th player overall. 

Dunn and any selections from the Veterans Committee will be honored during Reds Hall of Fame induction weekend -- July 21-22, 2018.
