I was just looking through some old schedules and box scores from past Reds teams on BaseballReference.com and I came across the 1990 schedule and I noticed the Reds opened that season up on the road in Houston (they won 8-4 in 11 innings). As we all know it's always been tradition for the Reds to open the season in Cincinnati. I looked it up and it was the first time since 1966 the Reds opened on the road. Does anyone know what the reason behind this was?
