This was a fun one. I was joined this week by Joe Oliver. You will all remember Oliver as a longtime catcher for the Cincinnati Reds, and the hero of Game 2 of the 1990 World Series, when he collected a legendary walk-off hit to give the Reds a 2-0 advantage over the Oakland Athletics. In this episode, Oliver recalls his memories of that team and his time in Cincinnati, and gets us up-to-date on his current duties as a minor league manager on the path back to the big leagues.
Music for this episode provided by Freekbass, a big Reds fan and a friend of Redleg Nation.
