May 24, 1952: Despite playing on a sprained ankle that caused him to be removed from the game in the 7th inning, Andy Seminick steals the show in an 11-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Crosley Field. He drove in 6 runs on two homers, including a grand slam in the fourth inning off Clete Boyer. Seminick hit .256 for the Reds in 1952 with 14 homers and 50 RBIs.

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.
