Trying to remember the outfield: George Foster in Left, Cesar Geronimo in Center, can’t remember the Right Fielder.

That was 44 years ago and I listened to every game with Marty Brenneman and the Ol Lefthander, Joe Nuxall.

Marty’s tag line.....”And this one belongs to the Reds”.... after a Reds win.
Joe would always say “This is the Ol’ Lefthander Rounding Third and Heading for Home”....as he finished his post game show.

*** Joe Nuxall was 15 years old when he signed with the Reds. The youngest player to ever play in a MLB game. He spent 62 seasons with the Reds as a player and announcer.

Edit: Had to look up Reds RF in 1976: Ken Griffey. How could I forget that...lol

RIP Joe Morgan.

Well remember Nuxhall's tag line. Even after I moved to Houston I would ocassionally listen to him on WLW in the days of analog dials. You could frequently pick up those 50,000 watt stations.

I was gonna say--- how could you forget Griffey????!!!

Ken might have been a Hall of Famer if not so overshadowed on his own team. He was a career .300 hitter (finished at .296 only because he played until age 41).

Foster would have been a Hall of Famer if he had stayed healthy just a few more years. He was the only player to hit 50 home runs between Willie Mays in 1964 and the steroid era of the 90s.

Griffey and Foster were both rookies brought up in September in 1972. After Bench hit the home run to tie game 5 of the NL championship series in the bottom of the 9th and Perez singled, Foster was sent in to pinch run for Perez. Griffey sacrificed Foster to 2nd. Al Michaels, "The pennant's on second!!!! The pennant's on second!!!!" "The pennant's on third!!!! The pennant's on third!!!! (edit-2 wild pitches brought Foster in from 2nd to home.)

For years I had every pitch of that inning memorized. And that was one I was trying to listen to during the daytime on WLW from Houston. Pre-cable days for those of you who are younger.

Gee whiz. Didn't know he was that old, but still....

This album (their third, I believe) was very good also...here's a cool song from it:

Artist: The Outfield
Album: Voices Of Babylon
Song: "Voices Of Babylon"
March 28, 1989 Columbia Records



They had an unusual experience for a British band in that they enjoyed commercial success in the US, but never in their homeland of England. For the group's third album, 1989's Voices of Babylon, a new producer (David Kahne) and sound was evident. The title track was a Top 25 single and hit #2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart . The follow-up song, "My Paradise", was a mid-sized album-rock hit reaching #34 in the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart but overall the group's popularity continued to decline. On July 9, 2014, original guitarist John Spinks died of liver cancer. He was 60 years old. On October 20, 2020, original founding singer Tony Lewis died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home near London.

Tony Lewis, singer for The Outfield, dies 'suddenly and unexpectedly' at 62

Thanks for the memories.
I can remember running home from school to catch the afternoon World Series games.

That’s when baseball was best to me. The Reds and Dodgers battling for the NL West Pennant every summer. I lost interest in baseball when they created the NL Central and broke up the old West.
