    just to the left, out of camera site.

    This pic is also from 1969; you can see the opening of the 3B dugout looking right down the first base line.

    Sweet rainbow.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Yep, with Bench catching, Helms at 2B and the Big Bopper at 1B.

    They look to be playing the Pirates.

    Notice the old plexi-glass backstop in the second picture.

    That's one heck of a shift! Maybe Matty Alou, the slap hitter, was at the dish?

    Always did love the outfield terrace.
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Was definitely not favorable for LH power hitters.
