    Re: Question about Old Red Guard

    For my english class I am doing a cultural response presentation on steroids, and would love to use Old Red Gaurd's post comparing training today versus the training of old. I was wondering if any of you knew his name (or his family's email adress) so I could give credit, where credit is certainly due.

    ORG's name is Charles Elledge. His son is a member of Redszone under the name RoyalsReds. You can probably try to reach him through the e-mail form there but he doesn't visit the board much.

    Re: Question about Old Red Guard

    When we did the brick for ORG there was a certificate that came to me regarding its' location and inscription. At the time, I had no address to send it to and, by the time I got it, I was in the process of moving and the certificate went astray. All the conversation about ORG prompted me to look for it and, after a couple of hours of digging I managed to find it (in an old tax return file---no wonder I never looked there before. )

    I just sent an e-mail to RoyalsReds, ORG's son, asking him for an address to forward the certificate to; hopefully he will get that since he hasn't posted here in over a year.

    Someone asked about the location of the Brick. The only thing I have says that it is in section 39 of the Hall of Fame Breezeway. Based upon the illustration that came with that locator, it looks like it would be about the middle of the breezeway between the Reds Team Store and the HOF entrance. It is closer to the side of the breezeway nearest Main Street.

    The instription on the brick is from a poem by ORG from his days of playing sandlot baseball as a boy. It reads:

    Where homeplate was a paper plate
    I'd take my Hero's stance and wait

    Someone took a picture of the Redszone Brick once.

    Which brings up another 'brick' subject. For newcomers to the site, there is also a Redszone Brick somewhere near the stadium. Darn if I can recall where though.

    Re: Question about Old Red Guard

    Here are a few pictures of Old Red Guards brick. I never thought of getting a few of Redszones

    If I get a chance, I will look through some of my last seasons pictures. I am pretty sure I have one around.

    I believe the RZ brick pictures are/were in the pics section of the site (which is currently not visible, but they do exist!).

    Thanks for the pics of the ORG Brick, TM! I've never seen any before so it's nice to know how it turned out.
