Re: Reds to unveil statue of Johnny Bench on Sept. 17th
What about Barry Larkin once he's in the HOF. Good choice or to soon? I would be curious to see who everyone else would choose if you were given the chance to build a couple statues for former Cincy greats.
During my 18 years I came to bat almost 10,000 times. I struck out about 1,700 times and walked maybe 1,800 times. You figure a ballplayer will average about 500 at bats a season. That means I played seven years without ever hitting the ball. ~Mickey Mantle, 1970
