Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
The summer of '69 was the summer before my senior year in HS. I'd been to Crosley many times starting in 1964. The only other ball park I"d been to was Cleveland Municipal Stadium which was a hole too. But all the parks then were on the nasty side but that was all you knew. Lots of cigar smoke, beer, and the heckling was fierce. But by then, Riverfront was being built and the was a huge buzz abot that and the team. The Reds were on the cusp of big things. But the country was in turmoil then too. Iot was a tumultuous time.
