In the late 80's I was at a community garage sale in the Dayton convention center and a guy was selling a photo of the BRM starting 8 looking towards the flag as the text for the ending of the star spangled banner came across the scoreboard at Riverfront.

I didn't buy it at the time, but obviously it made a big impression on me. I've thought of it several times since then and I've never seen the picture anyplace else.

This one is a personal favorite simply because I sleuthed out the game down to precisely when it happened. This photo was enlarged and on the wall of the Skyline Chili in St. Bernard. I asked them if they knew when it was from and they said they didn't. This picture doesn't show the detail that the blown up copy did, but I figured it was either an All Star game or the World Series since there was bunting up (although it could have been an Opening Day). Since all the players are in the same uniforms, I eliminated an All Star game.

That left either the 1939 or 1940 series. I think I could see enough detail that I eliminated the '39 Series. Before the days of Baseball-Reference.com, I pulled out my Baseball Encylopedia and review the World Series accounts in there. You can see there's a runner on 1st and another on 3rd. Everyone is looking out to the outfield except for the 3rd base coach (who is pointing to 3rd base) and the runner on third who is heading back to the bag.

That brought it down to the 7th inning of the 7th game in which, down 1-0. Frank McCormick opened the inning with a double, followed by Jimmy Ripple doing the same & knocking in McCormick. Catcher Jimmie Wilson then bunted Ripple to 3rd, followed by Ernie Lombardi pinch-hitting for Eddie Joost. Detroit walk the Schnozz intentionally and Lonnie Frey came in to run for him.

That brings us to this photo. Billy Myers then hit a deep fly ball to centerfield with Ripple scoring from third. Pitcher Paul Derringer then made the final out of the inning. Derringer then held the Tigers in the final two innings to give the club a 2-1 win and the Series title.

1944 Washington Homestead Grays:

Front L to Right: Jelly Jackson, Ray Battle, Edward Robinson, Sam Bankhead, Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard, Dave Hoskins, Jerry Benjamin, and Cool Papa Bell.


As Paige himself noted in his autobiography, Maybe I'll Pitch Forever, "If Cool Papa had known about colleges or if colleges had known about Cool Papa, Jesse Owens would have looked like he was walking."

Paige also liked to tell a tall tale referencing one hotel at which he and Bell stayed, in which there was a short delay between flipping the light switch off and the lights actually going off due to faulty wiring, sufficient for Bell to jump into bed in the interim. Leaving out the explanatory details, Paige liked to say that Bell was "so fast you can turn off the light and be under the covers. before the room gets dark!" Paige also joked of a time when facing Bell that the outfielder hit a line drive up the middle that went screaming past Paige's ear, and hit Bell in the buttocks as he was sliding into second base.

Many tales exist of "Cool Papa". For example, one claims that Bell scored from second base on a sacrifice fly. Another states that he went from first to third on a bunt, which is possible for a speedy runner if the fielded ball was thrown to first for the sure out and the first baseman, who rarely have strong throwing arms, was unable to make the long throw to third in time. More astonishing is the claim related in Ken Burns' Baseball that he once scored from first on a sacrifice bunt. In an exhibition game against white all-stars, Bell broke for second on a bunt and run, with Satchel Paige at the plate. By the time the ball reached Paige, Bell was almost to second and rounded the bag, seeing the third baseman had broken towards home to field the bunt. The catcher, Roy Partee of the Boston Red Sox, ran to third to cover the bag and an anticipated return throw from first. To his surprise, Bell rounded third and brushed by him on the way home; pitcher Murry Dickson of the St. Louis Cardinals had not thought to cover home with the catcher moving up the line, and Bell scored standing up. Another states that he stole two bases on a single pitch, which is difficult but feasible if a catcher making the throw to second made a mediocre throw and had a shortstop unable to catch the runner at third with a throw. There are many other, possibly exaggerated anecdotes about Bell, such as running a full trip around the bases in 11 seconds. Perhaps the most unlikely was that he was once called out for being hit by his own batted ball while trying to slide into second base.

My dad had a book on the Reds that had a picture of a game from the American Association days with a beer cart down the baseline, with the caption stating that it was not uncommon for players to down a beer while waiting at third base.

Gotta have the last name with it though, Cool Papa Bell is just awesome. Wouldn't have been the same if it had been Cool Papa Simmons

When I was a kid, our uniforms were just like this. I put on the red belt and I really thought I was a Red. This picture brought me back to that moment as a nine year old boy; the power of images and baseball is amazing.

The Reds wore that home uniform from 1968-1971, and that is Crosley Field.

Pete Rose won the NL batting title in 1968 and 1969.

That pic is from Pete was an absolute stud baseball player.

He went to high school with my mom, and I grew up idolizing the guy.

I learned, soon enough, not to idolize athletes, and have not in years.

But that pic is from when Rose was king.

I think these are the best Reds jerseys. I think it's a shame they change the uniforms every few years, would rather have something iconic that they kept for decades.

This last one really brings back memories. I used to love to collect those team photos every year. Unfortunately I lost them all during a flood in Ohio before we moved down to Texas. I've never been able to track those suckers down anywhere.

The other thing that comes to mind with these pictures is how unbelievably spoiled I was as a kid growing up with THIS team to follow. Heck, I thought all Reds teams were supposed to be like this. *grin* Don't we wish! :O)
