On Sunday my dad and I took my 8 year old nephew to his first Reds game. My dad was lucky enough to get his bosses seats in section 124, so that alone would have made his first game a good one, but it ended up being pretty great.
Before the game we went down by the dug out and he was able to get 3 autographs on his Reds hat. Then Joey Votto came out in the 1st inning and hit a home run, which my nephew called on the way to Cincinnati (from New Albany,IN). We then got to watch Votto hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 14th inning, doesn't get much better than that.
This got me thinking about my first Reds game, and I hope my nephew can remember his better than I can. All I remember about mine was sitting in about the same seats we and Sunday, but at River Front Stadium. If I remember correctly Barry Larkin and Pokey Reese both homered in the game, and the Reds won. Unfortunately that is all I can remember, and even that may not be right.
So, please share your 1st Reds experience with us. I'm sure we will hear some awesome stories.
