On a beautiful June night in 1994, Scott presented
Joe Nuxhall with his artwork, a collage of
drawings of meaningful times in Joe's baseball
career. If you look close, you can see Scott's name
on the scoreboard at Riverfront Stadium. Above is
one article about the evening and if you click
here, you can read another article.
Scott has created so very many works of art, including
drawings, sketches, paintings, Scoreboard clocks, books,
family memories, etc. Most of his subjects seem to focus on
baseball, specifically the Cincinnati Reds. Once this page is
published, I am asking Scott to scan his photos so I can
update his page. These are just the tip of the iceberg.
Thanks for being so creative Scott!
The article on the right is from Spitball Magazine from a
few years ago. It will give you a short history of his
journey. Click here for the web site.

Scott has illustrated THREE
books so far (there are more in
the works). His first 'Hutch' and

Scott's most profitable venture has been his baseball scoreboard clocks.
He has seven masterpieces! As you can see on the right, even Larry King
is enjoying his!
Click here for Pastimes Scoreboards & Dugout Memories to see of them.
For many years, Scott created Christmas cards for not only his family, but for Hank & I, Brent &
Kindra, and even our old neighbors, the Connors! Here are just two of our cards but I do have an
album of all the cards he created if you would like to see them. The one on the left is from 1999
and the one above is from 2004. Everyone loved receiving our Christmas cards so thank you Scott
for all your efforts!
Scott was commissioned to create a 1990 Auto Dealership calendar.
These were two of my favorites.
My favorite! An autographed Pete Rose dot drawing!
This picture hung in my office at work until I retired.
LOVE this one!

In April, I posted this picture of Jimmy. Scott was so impressed with it that he painted a picture
of him. In August, he presented the picture to Jimmy with Lincoln looking on. Nice job Scott!
Scott loves to draw pictures and cartoons of his family. The
one on the left is our family and ancestors he made for us on
our 40th anniversary. The middle one is us with only one
grandchild. The one above shows his love of us and
Casey Stengel and Hal
Scott created this work of art and donated it to the Blue
Ash Crosley Field. The Big Reds team was completed in
1990 and is simply the greatest Reds roster. The roster
was assembled by voting by reporters.
Scott would find out every summer what players would be playing in the annual Old Timers Game
and would create these drawings. He would then present them to the players after the game.

On February 6, 2018, the Cincinnati Reds posted this announcement:
"JUST ANNOUNCED: Starting pitcher Fred Norman and manager Dave Bristol will join Adam Dunn to complete the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame’s Induction
Class of 2018. Fred Norman was a mainstay of the Big Red Machine’s starting rotation from 1973-79 and recorded double-digit victory totals in each of his
seven seasons in a Reds uniform. Dave Bristol was a major contributor to the creation of the Big Red Machine and managed the Reds from 1966-69. The three
will be honored during Reds Hall of Fame Induction Weekend, July 21 & 22."
Scott created a Facebook page called Dave Bristol for Reds Hall of Fame in 2015. He wrote letters, made phone calls, and kept posting on Facebook. If you go
to this site and select About, you can read the reasons why he did this. After this was announced, Dave's son Lance send Scott a couple of private messages on
Facebook to tell him how moved his dad was and later in the day, Dave himself called Scott to thank him for all his efforts. Awesome job, Scott!

PHOTOS ON THE 2018 PAGE!
July 19, 2018: Scott was commissioned to create this drawing
for a lady whose husband is a huge Ohio State/Woody Hayes
fan. It's their family members with even a dog in the clouds.
She told Scott that after she gave it to her husband, it would
probably never get hung up because he takes it everywhere to
show his friends. Nice job Scott!
Here are postings from Facebook on July 23, 2018 started by Lance Bristol, son of Dave Bristol:
Lance Bristol: Scott Hannig, I just wanted to thank you for your dedication to getting Dad into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. You put countless hours in
this movement. I want you to know how thankful our entire family is. You are a wonderful man for doing this. Thank you!!
Scott Hannig I only did it because I knew he belonged in the Reds Hall of Fame. It looked like he really had a good time. Loved the speech.
Sandi Hannig Lance, did you see the photo of our family wearing these shirts that our other son bought? (I posted the photo of the family at the game wearing
the tee shirts that Brent & Kindra bought for everyone).
Lance Bristol Wow. This is amazing
Scott Hannig My family is amazing. You guys are the best. Thank you Brent for the tee shirts.

sneak his blooper pitch passed him but Tony timed it perfectly.
This is the moment the game turned around.
This is the moment that Red Sox nation $?!^ their pants."
Guess who was at this game and is in the picture? Uncle Raymond!
