100 Things Reds Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die (100 Things...Fans Should Know) (Paperback)
In this ultimate resource guide for true fans of baseball's first professional team, author Joel Luckhaupt has collected every essential piece of Cincinnati Reds trivia, as well as must-do activities, and ranked them from one to 100, providing an entertaining and easy-to-follow checklist for fans to complete in their lifetime. Most Reds fans have taken in a game or two at the Great American Ball Park, have seen highlights of the Big Red Machine, and remember the team's surprising triumph in the 1990 World Series. But only real fans know which 15-year-old took the mound for the Reds in 1944, can name the pitcher who gave up Pete Rose's 4,192nd hit, or remember how many dogs owner Marge Schott owned. "100 Things Reds Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die" is the perfect book for any fan of Reds baseball, whether a die-hard booster from the days of Ted Kluszewski or a new supporter of Joey Votto, Johnny Cueto, and Aroldis Chapman.
