Re: Sad day for Reds Fans- Joe has Rounded 3rd and headed home!Joe passed away overni
Marty is on the Reds cruise. Don't know if he's been notified yet though they did allude to it on the local news after the press conference. They also said many tokens of love have been laid at the feet of Joe's statue at the GAB.... one being a baseball on which is written "Rounding third and heading for heaven". So touching. Tonight, the ballpark will be dark with only two illuminations... his famous words on the outside of the building and a spotlight warming his statue.
This is such a sad day. I've read everyone's comments and sit here numbed by the remembrances. Such an awesome tribute you guys. When all is said and done, someone should print this thread and send it to Joe's family.
What a great man!
