the-big-50-chad-dotson-chris-garberYou may remember a few months back, when Chad Dotson and I announced our upcoming book, The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds. It’s a book that we’re really proud of, and incredibly impatient for you to read and hopefully enjoy.

Our partner in this effort is Triumph Books, one of the best sports publishing houses around. While we originally planned a publication date of this April, our publisher has decided to push the release date back to April 2018. The thinking is that the additional year will help us capitalize on the Reds imminent revival, and on the building success of The Big 50 as a series.

We appreciate everyone’s interest in the project, and especially the rush of pre-orders when the book was released. Our understanding is that the current pre-orders will be cancelled — the book is going to have a different serial number when it’s released, so you’ll need to order it again. Don’t worry. We’ll let you know a few hundred times.  We and Triumph are still very excited about the project, and committed to putting a big push behind the release a year from now. In the meantime, buy a cool Reds book from Triumph like this one from our buddy Joel Luckhaupt.
