Re: Favorite Reds Memories/Why are you a Reds fan?
Really could make two separate threads from this topic.
My favorite memory is Johnny Bench's HR in the 72 playoffs against the Pirates. Nothing can beat that for sheer excitement. Of course Geronimo catching the last out of the 75 World Series is the culmination of being a fan. I think I leaped with joy when Geronimo did after that final out.
Eric Davis HR in the 1st inning of Game 1 of the 1990 World Series. Set the tone of that series and the last great moments for the Reds until recently anyway.
Just too many good ones for someone who has been a fan for over 40 years. Lots of great personal memories of going to games when I was young and with my dad.
My dad, like many of us, lead me to being a fan. He always liked baseball. He would play baseball with me in my Grannys big front yard. One day my great uncle stopped by and told us about the Reds being on the radio via WSGS in Hazard, Kentucky. My dad got the radio out and tuned to the station for me. I was hooked for life.
