Re: Your First Reds Game
My first game was April 7, 1974, a 5-3 loss to the Braves at Riverfront. I was 11 and our Little League team went. I didn't realize at the time that Hank Aaron could have hit 715 at any time. He went 0-3 that day, then broke Babe's record the next night in Atlanta.
The funny thing is that if Aaron had hit a HR that night, I would have been enraged. At that age, history didn't mean anything to me. It was all whether the Reds won or lost.
