Father’s Day is on Sunday, and I’m guessing that many of you learned to love the Reds at your father’s knee. For years and years, baseball has thrived on generation after generation handing their love for this club to their children.
If your dad is like ours, I’m guessing he’d appreciate receiving “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” as a Father’s Day gift.* It’s the perfect Father’s Day gift for the Reds fans in your life. Dad can relive his favorite moments in Reds history, and maybe learn about some new ones.
At our recent book signing, Chris Garber and I were amazed at how many people came by to get a copy and ask us to sign it to their father.
*You might guess, from this shameless promotion, that I’d appreciate you buying a copy for your father. And you’d be right!
There’s still time to order the book and receive it before Father’s Day. It’s also available in all area bookstores; swing by and pick one up.
Better yet, get a personalized, signed copy from the authors, Thursday evening (June 14) at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in the Rookwood Pavilion. Chris and I will be discussing the book and signing copies beginning at 7:00 pm. Please drop by and say hello, if nothing else. Or mention my arch-nemesis Wayne Krenchicki, and see how I respond.
Thanks again to all of you who have supported the book, and who have made Redleg Nation special. I keep saying it, because it’s true: this book would never have been possible if it weren’t for the special community we’ve built up here together.
And if you really love me…ummm, I mean: if you really love your dad, you’ll get him the book for Father’s Day.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
