Hi everyone! I've been lurking for a while and decided it was time to join the conversation.
I've been following the Reds since the very early Big Red Machine days. I can remember listening to Al Michaels and Joe Nuxhall on my little hand held transistor radio! I remember when they first hired Marty Brenneman, my family and I used to laugh about how excited Marty would get whenever somebody hit a ball in the air. He thought every flyball was a home run for about 2-3 years.
Like everybody I loved the big four (Rose, Morgan, Bench, and Perez), but I really rooted for Foster and Concepcion. In the past 20 years or so my favorite players have been Eric Davis, Larkin, Griffey Jr., and Dunn. In fact, my favorite ballpark memory of recent years is taking my son to the game in which Dunn hit a ball to the Ohio River. At the time Dunn was the only player's name on the team my son recognized. For a long time after that he thought we should always see Dunn hit a 500+ foot homerun.
