    Re: Greatest moments in Reds history

    Pokey Reese's extra inning homer to cap off an unlikely comeback on a hot September Sunday in 1999. McGwire also hit his 60th for the second straight year that day, only to be upstaged by the diminuative middle infielder.

    Not an overly important historical event, but undeniably an emotional one, much like the entire season.

    I felt like they were a team of destiny that day. Little did I know that destiny was heartbreak.

Those homers were part of the reason. I was sure Shamsky could hit 50 homers if Heffner would just play him everyday!
    Broke my heart when they traded him for lowly Bob Johnson...boy do I still dislike Bob frickin' Johnson...

    My all-time favorite Reds defensive play (second favorite baseball play after Bo Jackson throwing out Harold Reynolds), and arguably the best defensive play in Reds history. So amazing because of the skill and athleticism involved, and yet so basic because he was actually backing up the play.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Re: Greatest moments in Reds history

    Biggest moments I've witnessed in person:

    1. Rose hit #4192
    2. Johnny Bench HR on Johnny Bench day 1983
    3. Joey Votto walk-off HR on the 25th anniversary of Rose breaking Cobb's record
    4. Barry Larkin hits 2 HR (and then goes on to hit 3HR the next game, which I didn't see in person, and which tied a ML record for HR in 2 days)
    5. Dave Parker throws out runner at the plate, then leads off the next inning with a HR (wish I could even remember the year for this one...1984 probably)
    6. Jeff Reed grand slam 1991 (because I was sitting with friends and called the unlikely HR)
    7. Reds rout Tom Glavine in Atlanta 16-0 (this was the same day as OJ Simpson's slow speed chase)
    8. Reds rout John Smoltz in Atlanta the following day 12-4

    Honorable mention:
    Had the opportunity to attend Tom Browning's perfect game, but it was raining and I had to work so I passed

    I was supposed to be there too, but my appendix burst on the way to Cincinnati.

    Might as well pin this. I'll be going to it a lot this year while drinking.

    Re: Greatest moments in Reds history

    Great thread. The Reds have quite a few historical moments like the 1869 undefeated team and the first night baseball game with lights.

    From my life
    Pete Rose breaking the record and Eric Davis HR in game 1 of 1990 WS
