Last week, it was announced that pitcher Fred Norman and manager Dave Bristol had been elected for induction to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. We noted at the time that RN’s Bill Lack had conducted a two-part interview with Norman back in 2013 on our podcast. (Here’s part one and here’s the conclusion). As […]

Back in September, here in the digital pages of Redleg Nation, our Greg Gajus was emphatic that there was a glaring omission among inductees to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. His piece was entitled, “The Missing Man: Fred Norman for the Reds Hall of Fame.” I can only speculate on why (Fred) Norman has […]

Join us in congratulating The Big Donkey @adamdunn_44 on being named the next inductee into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame! Dunn (2001-08) was the top vote-getter selected by fans, Reds alumni and select members of the media through the Modern Player Ballot. — Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) November 29, 2017 Congratulations to Reds slugger […]

The Big Red Machine is the greatest team in Reds history (thanks, Captain Obvious) and nearly every key contributor from that era has been honored with induction into the Reds Hall of Fame.  With the induction of Pete Rose last year, the entire Great 8 is in.  The manager is in.  The general manager is […]

Let’s get one thing straight, right from the beginning: I take Game of Thrones far too seriously. How about that season finale? Can you believe they killed off that one guy who did the thing? No, wait—I’m saving that piece for Cincinnati Magazine’s Fantasy Fanboy column that doesn’t actually exist yet. What I meant to […]

Since everybody is all mad at each other about statues right now anyway, let us discuss Pete Rose. Those of you who have read me for a while know that I used to work at the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, a position I speak of with much respect and affection, because I was […]

My city is a city in which we throw a parade on the first day of baseball season. Also that parade features a giant fiberglass rooster, one which is carefully slotted into a car wash bay so as to look its best as it makes its way through the heart of downtown. My city is […]

Greg Rhodes is currently the Reds Historian, and was the founding director of the Reds Museum and Hall of Fame. The author of seven books on the Reds, he was hired by the Reds in 2003 and guided the construction of the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum at GABP.  He retired as Director in […]

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 […]

The Reds team hall of fame is nothing short of incredible. What they have done to preserve the history of this great franchise is about as good as it gets. I haven’t been to every teams hall of fame, but it is hard to imagine one better than the Reds. For comparison,  I live in […]
