Re: out of town fans
I am from southwestern Virginia. For some reason, our little area had a lot of Reds fans. Our local AM radio station was a Reds station and I remember in the spring going to bed listening to the Reds on the radio. My mom and dad were not baseball fans and had no idea why I was listening to the radio, but they didn't try to stop me.
I was a kid during the Big Red Machine and grew up loving Bench, Rose, Foster, Morgan, etc. CF Geranimo was one of my personal favorites. I always thought playing CF for the Reds would be the ultimate job.
