September 1st, 1954 - In a
pre-game stunt, Reds GM Gabe
Paul offers $25 to each Reds and Giants catcher who would attempt to catch
balls dropped 575 feet from an Army helicopter hovering high above Crosley
Field. An additional $100 would be awarded to the willing participant for each
ball caught. Only the Giants' Hobie
Landrith and the Reds' Dutch
Dotterer - a Reds farm hand on leave from the Navy at the time
- volunteered. Dotterer would later appear in 100 games for Cincinnati from
1957-60 where he accumulated a modest average of .246.
Paul worked with the Reds
1967 - In what is still the longest game in Reds history to this day, the Reds fall
1-0 to the Giants in 21 innings at Crosley Field. The winning run was forced in
via a bases loaded walk by Cincinnnati reliever Bob
Lee. Giants starter Gaylord Perry pitched 16 shutout innings for h...

More ink for Reds rookie Todd Frazier as Ben Lindbergh of Baseball Prospectus recently tabbed him as one of ten top prospects finally living up to their potential.

First off, how cool is this? What you behold here is the beautiful work of Bill Irons, a 44-year old married father of four and a devoted Reds fan, who turned his massive 12-acre corn patch into a Cincinnati Reds-themed maze. This marks the 13th consecutive year that the Lebanon, Ohio native has sculpted such a creative design into his patch of corn. Last year the theme was zoo...
Now we know who the Reds will call up to fill out the expanded September rosters. As of now there will be seven players who will get the call. Some of them are familiar names to Cincinnati fans, while others will be making their debuts for the Redlegs.
The Big "O" Logan Ondrusek will be coming back on September 1. You'll remember he was unlucky...
If you're a Cincinnati Reds fan you know the future of the franchise is very bright. The next several years should bring us all plenty of great Redlegs memories and victories. However, I think it'd be fun to take a look back at some of the past years to remember some of the best players from the 2000-2009 Reds teams.
I've taken the liberty to build a...

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who has not played for the Reds since July 15, might return to the Cincinnati lineup on Monday, although the decision ultimately will be Votto's. Votto has been out more than six weeks since he had surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. He hit a home run in a rehabilitation game with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday...
Based on the way Bronson Arroyo has pitched of late, he should give the Cincinnati Reds a good chance to bounce back from a frustrating defeat.
The veteran right-hander can win five consecutive starts for the first time in four years Sunday in the NL Central-leading Reds' decisive series finale against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
