For the next two years, fans at Cinergy Field could look out over the center field wall and see the Ohio River and the new ballpark being constructed. The last game played at Cinergy Field was played on September 22, 2002, a 3-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. At the end of the 2002 season, the stadium was demolished on December 29, 2002. The following season, the Cincinnati Reds moved to their current confines at Great American Ball Park adjacent to the site of the former Cinergy Field.
Riverfront Park/Cinergy Field was home to many great moments in sports. Among the most memorable moments was Pete Rose's record-breaking hit that surpassed the previous record of 4192 hits set by Ty Cobb. Henry Aaron tied Babe Ruth's record at this stadium when he hit his 714th homerun.
