Great American Ball Park is the home of the Cincinnati Reds, opened in 2003. It is located on the shore of the Ohio River.

The ballpark features two large smokestacks in the outfield, meant to recall those on a paddle steamer. The stacks light up when a Reds pitcher strikes out an opponent and shoot fireworks when a Reds batter hits a home run. On May 15, 2015, the chimneys gave out more excitement than expected as one of the stacks caught fire during a game. Luckily, the blaze was extinguished quickly and no one was hurt.
