    September 24, 2000 was the last game for the "real" Riverfront -- the fully intact stadium with Astroturf.

    Re: On this date Reds bid farewell to riverfront

    I've always been the biggest baseball fan in my family. My dad took me to well over 30 games a year as a kid at Riverfront. Although we sat in the blue, green, and red seats, we spent many games sitting by the RF foul pole in the greens. I have so many good memories hanging out with my dad at Riverfront. Although the stadium was a concrete sauna with sticky floors and a strange smell, it will always be the location for my most fondest of baseball memories.

    Does anybody remember a movie that was shot in Cincinnati, about a hockey kid who moves to town and tries to fit in with the local street skating kids, and there’s huge race through the streets that ends up outside Riverfront?

    I remember sitting up in the Red seats in the 70's in freezing cold April using my straight A tickets.

    It's hard to explain. I spent many games in my uncle's seats, Green, aisle 204, row 11, seat 4 and countless others with my dad, other friends and even occasionally by myself. Riverfront, with all its warts, was home.

    Saw my first professional baseball games there. I had no basis for comparison at the time, but I loved that place.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    I have some fond memories of Riverfront, including sitting in the top row of the red seats at the game where Rose got hit 4192, and seeing Johnny Bench hit his HR on Johnny Bench night celebrating his retirement.

    Re: On this date Reds bid farewell to riverfront

    I have too many memories in that place. My first game I remember was in '74 against the Braves and I bood Hank Aaron. My mom told me not to boo him because he was a good guy, and I didn't understand because to my simple five year old mind, he was on the other team, hence he was the enemy. Game 2 of the '76 World Series saw us sitting in the top row in center field. I went to a ton of games in '90, including the NLCS game against the Pirates where O'Neill threw out Van Slyke at third base from right field. The lowest moment was being there for McSherry's death on Opening Day. I could go on and on.
