Rawly Eastwick's start in Game 1 for the Cards was the only start of his big-league career.

I went to this doubleheader. It doesn't seem like it's been 30 years ago. Someone,who was a Cardinals fan,couldn't go and gave me his tickets. Me and my brother-in-law drove from Cumberland,Ky,which is a good five hour trip,up to Cincinnati and back in the same day. We had seats in the blue section in right field. This may have been first season these seats were open. I don't really remember a lot about the games. Just that the Reds had a good lead in the 1st game and barely hung on to win. In the 2nd game Billingham got torched in the 2nd inning for NINE runs. This was the third game he had pitched in this week so it was no wonder he didn't have anything. He also got booed very heavily when Sparky took him out in the 2nd inning. I think we left after the sixth inning of the 2nd game since the Reds were hopelessly out of it. We got back around 4 am but it was good times. Very good times. :)

I know that players, coaches, Reds personnel (broadcasters), etc. hate doubleheaders, but as a fan I have always wanted to attend one.

I loved them too. Being a fan that lived far away we would always try to go to a doubleheader since we couldn't make it to Cincy that often. Those were the days that had scheduled doubleheaders which is now a thing of the past.

Kinda shows you how the game has changed. Eastwick starting a game in 77' would be similar to Mariano Rivera starting a game today. It just doesnt happen!!

We always did the same thing.
