Re: out of town fans
As a kid baseball was not one of my favorite sports, but I did find my way to all 4 of the 4 major North American professional team sports. I started noticing the Reds around the time they won the 90 World Series so that is how I assume I first started likeing them. As a kid players that I remember liking and trying to emulate when playing were guys like Barry Larkin, Chris Sabo, Paul O'Neill, Jose Rijo and Bip Roberts. As I got a little bit older I started following baseball less and less and didn't really come back till the Reds traded for Griffey. I started to follow the Reds again and got used to the new guys. By the time the transition occured from the older Griffey, Dunn teams to the current team is when I really became a big Reds fan.
