Published May 2008

Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Cincinnati Reds documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Reds highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include “the Big Red Machine” going to the World Series in 1975 and the opening of the Great American Ball Park, as well as the disastrous 1982 season and the infamous Pete Rose gambling scandal. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.
