Ron Oester Arrested

LAST UPDATE: 4/27/2006 4:28:57 PM


A former Cincinnati Red was arrested Thursday afternoon. Longtime second baseman, Ron Oester, was arrested for disorderly conduct around 2:20 pm outside the Campbell County District Courthouse. Police say Oester wanted to talk to officers about a guilty verdict his daughter had just received for a traffic offense. Officers say he became "belligerant, yelling curse words and physically flailing about." Police tell Local 12 Oester resisted several warnings to calm down, before his arrest.

I'm sure he blames JimBo.

Screaming at the cops.............................always a good idea!

He was just showing off his coaching style. Had they indulged him, he'd have then taunted the officers with some feminine hygiene products.

I'm just taking a wild guess but I don't think Marty will have as much to say about this as he did when JimBo got arrested.

Ron Oester's daughters are in their early- to mid-twenties. It's not like these are 16-year-old kids who even really needed their father there.

I like him, but I think he's kind of a nutjob.

Maybe he had a hallucination that the cop was an umpire who had just blown a call.

Is he employed these days? If not, it'll be a little tougher now to re-enter the job market having to check that "Yes" box next to "Have you ever been arrested...?"

Maybe he got confused when he saw blue uniforms and thought he was dealing with umpires? ;)

[edit]traderumor beat me to the umpire joke while I was slowly typing it out. :(

I always thought Oester was one of the most overrated Reds. He had what- one good year? Though he was always a fan favorite.

Yet everyone wanted to ride Eric Davis out of there....never ceased to amaze me how that town could absolutely not judge baseball talent.

Adam Dunn bats .240 with an OBP of close to.400 and he stinks. Just ask the WLW listening audience. I had a relative tell me that the other day- he said Dunn struck out too much. I asked him if it would make him feel better if he grounded out more.

No one turned the double play more efficiently. His .264 average in 1983 was second only to Dan Driessen's .277. Excellent year for the Reds offense.

Ironic he and Jimbo were arrested recently, now they have something in common at least.

Beat out Junior Kennedy in '80....Local boy did good...hit .295 in '85 ..won a Hutch Award for his "fighting spirit"...

He's Pete Rose ... with more hothead and the value-sized bag of Lay's on his shoulder.

How many games you go to? Adam Dunn is the most popular player on the team along with Griffey. Do you not realize that talk radio is going to bring out the whiners and the idiotic fans?

Cincinnati has many bad baseball fans, but also plenty great one's.

Yes when runners are on 2nd or 3rd with less than 2 outs that would be great...

i remember seasons where the reds were lucky to have someone hit 15 homeruns.

Ron is making up for his pasivity over the years. Seriously -- I wouldn't be surprised if he ran in to a few disgruntled demented doughnut eaters on an Oester Fast.

Things have taken a downward turn for Oester after he didn't get the managers job in Cincy.

Yeah, and then he might not hit 49 homers a year because he's trying to make basic contact. I'll take the 40 plus dingers and the 40 percent OBP over the dude who knocks in runs with a ground out any day.

This isn't 1979.

Joe sure put up big numbers, but it took him an incredible number of outs to do so, didn't it? A career OBP of .306.

Was OESTER! flailing about, or was he just demonstrating the way he'd routinely windmill Sean Casey around third on a shallow single to the OF with 2 outs?

It would make me feel a lot better if he grounded out to the right side of the infield with a runner on third with less than two outs.

God please tell me this isn't happening again.

Adam Dunn is the best run producer on the best offense in baseball. Worrying about every little detail is just overkill.

He may have lead the team in homeruns and RBI that year also. I think he has like 58 or something RBI. 94 was a very bad year to be a Reds fan. The thought of thinking about Paul Householder and Dwayne Walker makes my stomach upset.

You're right. That was a dismal season. Amazingly, Mario Soto won 17 games that year and finished 2nd in the Cy Young Award voting. He was an amazing pitcher on some abysmal teams.

Not as bad a downward turn than Darren Daulton when he didn't get the Philly job.

Back a few lifetimes ago circa 1983-84, I did a computer system install down at the Reds (RSTS/E on a PDP-11, a minicomputer back before PCs) in the off-season. It was for their season tickets IIRC.

Ron Oester was in the office doing some work for the Reds. He came over and watched me for a couple hours. I was suitably awed but he put me at ease and was genuinely interested in what I was doing. He talked to me a lot about computers and I talked to him a lot about baseball. I've always thought he was a good guy and pretty down-to-earth.

Oh wait, I was confused because the threat got hijacked again.

Sorry.
