    Re: Introductions Thread

    Hi all, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm an English baseball fan who got into the sport through middle of the night broadcasts of MLB in the 90s, fell in love with the game itself and the history of it, the way the game is so different to any of our popular sports (eg drafting the young players rather than seeing the richest clubs sign them as 14 year olds) , and I've been following the Reds as best I can from the UK for several years now. While I consider myself pretty knowledgeable, it's not like I can really test that being from a country that doesn't really show any interest in baseball (people literally wear Yankees caps here without realising they're a sports team!), i'm mostly here to learn so go easy on me, but i think for an Englishman my knowledge of baseball is good enough to comment on it (I even understand WAR and OPS!) but we will see! Sadly my only experience of live baseball was the Red Sox-Yankees game in London (yes I know this was not a typical MLB game!)...Looking forward to learning from the experts, becoming more immersed and hopefully one day catching a game at Great American. Hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy and looking forward to the season starting!

    Awesome, it's a great sport with a lot to love on and off the field.

    I'm trying to recall if we have another British fan or if I'm just mistaking some one who has UK in their ID referencing the neighboring University of Kentucky.

    Welcome!

    That said, it seems to me when I try to do a quick search of "Reds" on Google, there's some English football club that pops up. Liverpool???

    Hey fellow Redleg fans! My name is Brian and I'm 30 yrs old. Me and the family usually attend 5-10 games a year at GABP and a game or two a year at Wrigley or STL. I'm married and have 3 great kids, 2 who are in their early 10's and a 2 yr old that is either going to keep me young or kill me..lol...Look forward to chatting some baseball and other topics!

    Yes this was a hard thing to square away given that I'm a Leeds United fan and we have the saying "Better dead than Red" in reference to Man Utd and Liverpool but the Reds were the team I fell for.
