Re: 1990 World Series - I have questions...You have answers?
1. You can find all those answers by looking up the old boxscore on baseball-reference.com. I'm at work and can't access the site from here.
2. In a 2-1 game victory is not assured until the final out is recorded.
3. Any fan (Ohioan) worth anything listened to the game on WLW, and Marty and Joe called the game for The Big One.
Marty instead of his traditional "and this one belongs to the Reds" went instead with and the 1990 World Championship belongs to the Reds" when Todd Benzinger cought a foul pop up.
The great run and WS helped Cincy heal from the Pete banishment, I don't remember it being brought up a lot during the series. He wouldn't have been eligible for the Hall yet.
The bigger stories were the "wire-to-wire" Reds still being underdogs to the mighty A's, and the A's going to thier third consecutive WS.
Hope some of this helps.
I still listen to Marty and Joe regardless of who is really in the booth.
