Editor: This is the eighth installment (of nine) of a year-long series by our resident Reds historian, John Ring. The series is examining the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Cincinnati Reds, a team on the brink (of huge success) playing during a year that it seemed the world was on the brink. Enjoy! Part 1: […]

The Cincinnati Reds unveiled their 2019 plans for a season-long celebration of 150 years of professional baseball in the Queen City. Plans include a number of throwback uniforms…including the awesome blue 1911 uniforms. I never wanted to see the 1995 uniforms again, but most of these are very cool.

Recently, I did an extended interview with John Kiesewetter of WVXU about “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds,” the book that I wrote with Chris Garber. We talked about the book, of course, but also dove into Reds history. It was a lot of fun. Here’s John’s story about […]

He will never go down as a great Reds pitcher and he was never on a World Series championship team, but Tony Cloninger will always be remembered as a power pitcher, a power hitter, and as a guy who always wanted to take the ball and pitch. Cloninger pitched for the Reds briefly -— from […]

Seeing Corky Miller in a Louisville uniform at Slugger Field isn’t unusual. After all, the former Reds catcher is the de facto “Mayor of Louisville,” as Sean Casey is in Cincinnati.
