The Reds must have liked what they saw out of Norman. They traded for him in less than a month. This was the only win Norman had before he came to the Reds.

It would be the only home run Davey would hit that year.

IIRC, Durham stay with the Reds wasn't that long. He got involved in drugs and never was the same player he was for a short time with the Cubs.

IIRC, Durham stay with the Reds wasn't that long. He got involved in drugs and never was the same player he was for a short time with the Cubs.

I seem to remember that when the Reds opened a four-game series in Montreal after the All-Star break, Durham was a no-show. Johnny Bench, who was a TV commentator at the time, mentioned something about Durham not being a "happy camper" because he was splitting time with Nick Esasky. Bench felt that if he didn't want to be a Red, then good riddance. They kept Durham's drug problem quiet--you didn't air dirty laundry back then, and they had already gone through Eddie Milner's relapse earlier in the season. I remember not hearing about Durham's drug use until much later. I think the Reds put Durham on the suspended list for the remainder of the season.
