Reds will retire Larkin's No. 11

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds will retire Barry Larkin's No. 11 jersey on Aug. 25, a month after he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Cincinnati will host "11 Days of Larkin," a series of celebrations beginning Aug. 16 at Great American Ball Park, and concluding with the ceremony for the former shortstop.

Larkin's jersey will be the 10th retired by the Reds. He joins Fred Hutchinson (1), Johnny Bench (5), Joe Morgan (8), Sparky Anderson (10), Dave Concepcion (13), Ted Kluszewski (18), Frank Robinson (20), Tony Perez (24) and Jackie Robinson (42).

"The entire Hall of Fame experience has been a dream for us, and (this) will be a fitting end to an incredible summer," Larkin said. "I want this to be a celebration about all Cincinnatians who have made the city proud."
