The Reds should sell a nice scorebook in the team shop. I'd for sure buy one.
They used to. Years ago. My mom (who got me hooked on Reds, WLW and scorekeeping) always got one that was spiral bound with well over 50 games worth in it. Reds logo on the cover. She still has all of her books from 74 through 77. I love going back and looking at those babies. She'd always put in there "And this game is underway" or "And this one belongs to the reds" or "this is the ole' left-hander rounding third and heading for home" (she's a lefty). Just hearing Marty's voice brings back all those memories of sitting by the radio and keeping score with my mom.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
