    Hello from Batavia, Ohio

    Hello All from Batavia, Ohio. Lifelong Reds fan, although the 90's were a little fuzzy for me, but Ive always loved the Reds. My two sons (7 and 3) are Reds fans by default. Glad to read this forum to see so many fans out there!

    Thanks,
    Fordman & Sons!

    btw, I made the pic below, found it quite comical!

    Nice job on the Stubbs' card.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Worked at the Batavia plant, now at Sharonville. Seen a few Ford plants during my tenure with Ford. Batavia was the best one!

    Thanks guys for all you did to fund my education. I'm a Princeton HS grad and Ford and GE paid the lion's share of our bills!
