This week at Redleg Nation, we’re running a series of posts celebrating this year’s inductees into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame: Adam Dunn, Dave Bristol, and Fred Norman. Back in 2013, I had a chance to sit down with Fred Norman for a wide-ranging interview for Redleg Nation Radio. It was a lot of […]

On this week’s episode, I had a great conversation with author John Erardi about his latest book, “Tony Perez: From Cuba to Cooperstown.” It’s a fantastic read, and our conversation was a lot of fun as we dug into Perez’ life and career and much more. You can purchase the book at all area bookstores, […]

Everyone has a story. Reds Hall of Famer George Foster is telling one of his tonight in Cincinnati, and we told him we’d help get out the word. Here are the specifics: Buy us some peanuts and Cracker Jack, we’re kicking off Spring Training by taking everyone out to the ballgame with true, personal stories […]

We’ve still not attained full Spring Training status, so this is usually rough times for People of Baseball. Well… not me. I roll around in all things Olympics, so this is my biannual party of staying awake 17 days straight. My favorite part is all the international harmony and sportsmanship. But if you don’t like […]

Our budget-conscious mother sewed, cobbled together, or recycled our Halloween costumes, which by 2017 standards isn’t just Earth-friendly, it was life-saving. Instead of shipping us out the door sheathed in flammable plastic to walk amongst a dark neighborhood rife with candles, she sent us into the night well-equipped to flee the potential razor blades buried […]

In a blatant attempt to divert your attention away from the 2017 Reds and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Losing Streak, we’re going to fall back on the old Cincinnati standby: talk about the Big Red Machine instead. Over the weekend, as you probably know, the Reds unveiled the latest statue on Crosley […]

Most people make New Year’s resolutions, which means they’re going to add in positive actions or delete negative behaviors, which means they’re all going to be miserable by February if not sooner. It never works. All it does is make those of us who have our own cozy staked-out area at the yoga studio cram […]

Watching some of the Olympics this week, I’ve been thinking a lot about all-time records. Baseball is no longer part of the Olympics (and I’m fine with that), but it focuses historical records as much as any Olympic sport. If you grow up a baseball fan, you grow up learning about the streak, 61 (or […]

This submission is from reader Todd McDorman. With this post, I think we’ve probably run the gamut of opinions on the Hit King. The raucous capacity crowd greeted their favorite son with a hero’s welcome. The adulation continued for minutes. First, for the anniversary of the returning 1976 World Championship team. Then, for the retirement […]
