Re: Your First Reds Game
August 17, 1963
I was 11 years old and it was a late birthday present.
Beat the Cubs 2-1
I was happy and even more so because my parents were Cub fans
Saw my favorite player - Vada Pinson & some guy named Rose
Nuxie got a save!
I kept the scorecard for a long time -- until my mother cleaned out my room when I left for college.
The stadium was not even close to filled so we got to move to better seats than what my parents had purchased.
No autographs though.
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
