Saw this on Lance McAlister’s blog:

The list of the games they’re going to show:

    Mon., Jan. 25th -10:30pm On September 11, 1985, a sellout crowd at Riverfront Stadium and a national television audience were watching to see if Pete Rose could break Ty Cobb’s hit record. After going 0-for-4 the previous night, Rose didn’t disappoint. He hit a line drive single to left field off San Diego’s Eric Show on a 2-1 pitch for hit No. 4,192.

    Mon., Feb. 1st – 8pm On October 22, 1975, the Reds faced the Boston Red Sox in Game 7 of what has been ranked one of the best World Series ever. The “Big Red Machine” won it in the ninth to clinch the first of back-to-back World Series championships.

    Mon., Feb. 8th – 8pm After 11 big league years, Tom Seaver was finally able to cross off one of the few achievements that had eluded him in his magnificent career with his only no-hitter on June 16, 1978.

    Mon., Feb.15th – 8pm A two-hour, 27-minute rain delay didn’t halt Tom Browning, who retired all 27 Los Angeles Dodgers he faced in a 1-0 victory on September 16, 1988. Browning concluded the only perfect game in Reds history by retiring Rick Dempsey on a fly to deep right field, Steve Sax on a grounder to shortstop and Tracy Woodson on a strikeout. A throwing error accounted for the Reds’ only run.

    Mon., Feb. 22nd – 8pm We’re bringing back the re-mastered version of the classic Reds game from October 12, 1976, when the Reds swept the Phillies in NLCS Game 3. This special telecast includes original video from NBC synced with the audio of Reds veteran duo Marty Brennaman and Joe Nuxhall.

    Mon., Mar.1st – 8pm On October 14, 1970, the Reds faced Baltimore in Game 4 of the World Series. The Reds lost the series but won this game 6-5 thanks to clutch hitting by Lee May and stellar relief pitching by rookie Don Gullett and veteran Clay Carroll. Featuring a very young and upcoming Big Red Machine, this game is one of the oldest known Reds games to exist in its entirety.

I’m looking forward to seeing almost all of these games…I’d have traded the Rose game for Game 4 of the ’76 Series, but that’s just me.

    I love that they do this, but the “milestone” games like Rose’s 4,192 don’t exactly make for three hours of compelling television. The moment itself comes in the first couple of innings and then there’s no reason to keep watching.

    The World Series games are nice, too, but I’d like to see some of the more modern games that I remember watching in person… maybe the final game of the 1995 NLDS against LA? I remember that being a blowout. Or how about some exceptional comebacks or walk-off victories from the last few years?

    Now the no-hitters are perfect for this kind of thing.

    Is there anyone who would be willing to record these games on DVD for me? I’m in college in WA, but I absolutely love baseball history (even did my senior thesis on the steroid era) and want to see these games. I’d surely compensate you for your time.

      Matt: Very cool about your senior thesis! A friend of mind did his Master’s thesis in Communications on the content of Hall of Fame induction speeches. He has a copy of it in the HOF library in Cooperstown.

      Sorry but I can’t help you out with the DVD.

    Gee, makes me wish I got Fox Sports Ohio! Sadly, I’ll just have to replay them in my mind. 🙁

    I appreciate them doing this but weren’t these the same games as last year? Hey Fox lets see something different.

  5. Chad Dotson

    I’m like Bill…other than the Rose game, I’m really looking forward to seeing these games again. It’s a good idea by FSN.

    I’ll have to look back in the archives to see what games they showed last year.

    And Matt, I wish I could help you. Hope someone out there in The Nation steps up to the plate.

    @Matt B.: I would do it for you, but I find it a hard time recording anything on my DVR on Monday nights thanks to my wife and her shows. If I can get something worked out, I will let you know.

  7. AmericanSoldier

    That’s all well and good – IF you live in the viewing area. I doubt I’ll get these great games from Missouri.

  8. BJ Ruble

    @Matt B.: Just looked at the schedule on Monday nights, and there is a decent possibility that I will be able to get it done. Do you care if it has commercials or not?

    I wish I could watch. I’d like to see the 1990 series again. Not sure that any of those games would qualify as a classic, but when Davis hit that home run I remember going nuts.

      I’m with you. The first game of that series is a classic. Also (I believe it was game 2) when Billy Bates came rambling home for the win in the 9th was another “classic” game.

    Also important to note that unless you live in Cincinnati, you probably won’t be able to see most of these. I live in Columbus and get the Fox Sports feed out of Cleveland. The last two years, they have pre-empted Reds Rewind Classic for Cavs games, Blue Jackets games, and even non-live stuff like poker tournaments.

    Sounds like we have quite the Columbus contingent represented. We should all get together and watch a couple games locally, as well as meet up at GABP.

    For the moderators: Would it be possible to start a post for everyone to check in on so we know where folks are from and who might be interested in Reds related activities? I don’t mind organizing central Ohio.
