June 2, 1943: The Reds bobard the NY Giants, 13-6 at Crosley Field. Withrow High School (local Cincinnati public high school) graduate Al Lakeman led the attack with three singles, a double, three RBIs, and three runs scored.

During World War II, blood donors received a free Reds ticket for every pint given.

About The Author

I've been a Reds fan since the late '60's, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in '84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in '90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
