Starting pitcher Tom Browning will be one of several former Reds and Cubs who'll meet for a "Legends Game" Aug. 19 at UC Health Stadium in Florence.

Remember that time Tom Browning left Wrigley Field fully dressed as a Cincinnati Red, and joined Chicago Cubs fans on a rooftop beyond the outfield?

Well, 1993 was kind of a long time ago, but Browning will be on the same field as Cubs Aug. 19, when former Cincinnati and Chicago players meet for a "Legends Game" in Florence, Ky., at UC Health Stadium.

He'll be joined in a seven-inning matchup by former Reds Danny Jackson, Bret Boone, Hal Morris, Lenny Harris and others against a Chicago squad that will include Bill Madlock, Corey Patterson, Willie Wilson Bobby Dernier and Kyle Farnsworth.

Gates open at 5:05 p.m., and players will sign autographs before the 7:05 p.m. game. Browning is expected to remain on the ground.
