And he moved up a spot as a reward. The climate at Crosley Field evidently agreed with Gene.

This was Pete Rose's first game in his return to Cincinnati as player-manager. In his first at-bat, Rose singled to left-center, where Cubs CF Bob Dernier misplayed the ball for a two-base error, and Rose went full speed into third base with a head-first slide that caused the entire stadium of 35,038 to erupt. Mario Soto pitched a complete-game five-hitter to get the win for the Reds.

That still is one of my all time favorite moments in Reds history that I have observed. It was an electric moment and Rose brought Reds baseball back to life.
