        Hamilton County will allow 100 people to leave a lasting impression on Great American Ball Park.

        Starting Friday, the county will launch a “Put Your Mark on Great American Ball Park” brick drawing. One hundred people will have their names or a message inscribed on a brick that will be permanently paved into the ballpark's concourse.

        The drawing is open to the public at no cost.

        Entries will be collected between Friday and April 1. Winners will be randomly drawn on April 3.

        Entries will be taken on the following dates at these locations:

        • March 1-8: Forest Fair Mall.

        • March 1-15: Tri-County Mall.

        • March 8-15: Carew Tower Arcade.

        • March 15-30: Northgate Mall.

        • March 15-30: Kenwood Towne Centre.

        Entries also will be collected at the Great American Ball Park information tent on Opening Day, April 1, outside Gate 3 of Cinergy Field Plaza. Entries can also be submitted on the county's Web site at

        The bricks from the drawing will be paved into the concourse alongside bricks sold by the Reds.

        Great American Ball Park is scheduled to open in April 2003.
