We’re launching a new feature here at RLN – the photo vault. Thanks to the good folks at Getty Images and the Cincinnati Enquirer, we at the Nation have access to a vast archive of Reds related images. We’ll share the best of them periodically. If you have your own images you’d like to share, please send them to us.
Today, we look back 88 years, to a time when the Reds trained in Mineral Wells, Texas. According to Hall of Famer Edd Roush, it was way too hot. Roush hit .352 in the 1922 season, but only played in 49 games. Maybe he was right about the heat.
