Hal McCoy is one of the most respected sports writers to ever grace the world with his presence. He has been covering Reds baseball (since 1972) for longer than most of us have even been alive. He coined the nickname "Big Red Machine" for the 1970s Reds and was honored by the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002 as the winner of the J. G. Taylor Spink Award teams. Now, McCoy is asking for a favor: As most of you know, I am legally blind and unable to drive. For the past five years, my friend Larry Glass has been my driver from Dayton to Cincinnati and back for Cincinnati Reds home games.  Unfortunately, Larry has some health issues and won't be able to drive this year, leaving me with no transportation to and from Reds games.  So…is there anybody out there with nothing much to do on their hands who would like to see most of the Reds home homes this season…for free. Free games and a seat in the pressbox next to me is the upside. A willing driver is even eligible to receive up ...
