Re: Your First Reds Game
My first game was in April of 1970, 9 years old at the time. It was against the SF Giants. Our seats at Crosley were along the first base line, right behind the coach's box, in the second or third row.
I vividly remember a pop foul caught by Willie McCovey over the head of another kid in the first row. He was the biggest man I had ever seen in my life up to that point! Or so it seemed to me.
I also remember the pitcher who held the Giants to one hit that day, Wayne Simpson. Always makes me sad when I think of him and what a talent he was for such a short period of time.
