Yesterday was Old-Timers Day at Yankee Stadium, and it caused me to wonder why the Reds don’t have an annual Old-Timers game.

Which brings up another question: if the Reds did have such a game, who is the one former Red that you’d like to see make an appearance.

For me, I can’t think of many, but I would love to see Mario Soto on the mound again in a Reds uniform.

    Frank Robinson, although seeing the Big Red Machine together would be well worth it too. 🙂

    Whatever happened to Cesar Geronimo? You never hear of him being asked to anything the Reds are putting on.

    a) The Reds used to have an old timers game, not sure when it stopped, but I’m guessing during the Schott era.
    b) Geronimo’s been around for the “Great 8” gatherings
