    Central Wisconsin. We weren't used to people of color.

    Right around 1955, I would think?

    Only one baserunner for the Brewers. Braun on a hit-by-pitch.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    '56. The old Northern League. That's the league Aaron played in. A ball. Pinson was with the Reds two years later and had a huge year in '59.

    Pinson had one of the best 20-year old seasons in baseball history.

    My first favorite Red was Jim Maloney. Heard the final outs of his last no-hitter on a transistor radio through my pillow when I was supposed to be asleep.

    He was replaced in my affections by Tony, who remains the Red man, to me.

    yeah, something happened to him after 61. He never had a year like that again. He'd fit in nicely on the present team though.

    My dad said we were looking at a future HOFer when Pinson first came up.

    He used to get more triples in a year than many got HR's
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    He got over 200 hits a couple more years after that

    Can you imagine how many home runs the Big Red Machine would have hit if they had stayed in Crosley? Perez, May, Bench, Foster etc.

    Me too. I never tried CF, but I did imitate his swing.

    This is getting weird.

    10 Ks so far. Too bad the fans don't get the pizza and ice cream if 11 Reds strike out.
