I was six-years old and had just moved into the heart of Reds Country, Fairfield, OH from Fort Wayne, IN in August. Dad took me to see Jerry Reuss and the Dodgers take on Mario Soto and the Reds on Friday, Sept 11. I don't remember a lot of the details, but I remember seeing some of the BRM (Bench, Concepcion, Griffey and Foster were all starters), and how can a kid forget a walkoff (before we used that term) HR in his first Reds game? Thank you, Ron Oester. I was probably your biggest fan for the next 10 years.
That ride home up I-75 and Route 4 listening to Marty and Joe describe what I had already seen was one of the coolest things ever.
