June 9, 1952: The Red purchase Cal Abrams from the Dodgers.

Arams was one of many Dodgers cast-offs acquired by the Reds during the late 1940s and early 1950s. Others included Claude Corbitt, Augie Galan, Tommy Tatum, Willie Ramsdell, Hank Edwards, Bud Podbielan, Clyde King, and Joe Black.

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.
