3. What were three key events in the ‘long decade’, 1979-1991
The Big Red Machine officially died after the 1981 season,if not before.
In 1984 Pete Rose came back to Cincinnati and became player manager and then broke the all time hit record in 1986. I know that's really two points but they do kinda go together
In 1990 The Cincinnati Reds won their last World Series to date.
Hope that helps.
