Re: Favorite Reds Memories/Why are you a Reds fan?
Frank Robinson 1956. Electrifying player. I was six years old. I can remember sitting in the left field stands one afternoon at Crosley. Frank hit one over the screen in left, hit another line drive off the left center field fence that got to the wall as fast as any ball I've ever seen (to this day), and came running in full tilt to catch a ball at his shoetops. I've seen many great players for the Reds but nobody quite like Frank. The trade still hurts.
