Re: What was your first Reds game you remember attending?
Tuesday, August 14, 1979 vs. the Phillies at Riverfront. I was in Dayton visiting my Aunt and Uncle and they took me to my first baseball game ever. I wasn't a baseball fan at the time, only 9 yrs. old but soon after the game I became a Reds fan for life! The Reds won 2-1 in 10 innings on a Vic Correll pinch hit double driving in Ray Knight. Steve Carlton went the distance striking out 12 and Bill Bonham pitched 8 innings for the home team. Tom Hume got the win in relief. I don't remember what kind of reception Pete Rose got returning to Cincy but I think he had visited earlier in the season so it wasn't too bad.
