    Adding one very fond memory … listening to WLS when I was a kid living in Southern NY state. Got that signal usually when it was overcast and the “skip” spread out farther than normal. Nuxhall was the best.

      WLW … not WLS (only did that in the mornings when I lived in South Bend)

  8. doofus

    Seeing a major league baseball field for the first time, June 21, 1964 in Cincinnati.

    2 through 5, too many to rank.

  9. Michael

    Fun topic. I was born in 1980 so I am smack dab in the middle of the Dotson boys.

    5. Weird to put up a non reds player moment but I had the pleasure of being at the Mark Whitten 4 home run game. It was surreal seeing it happen. Stupid Cardinals.

    4. Barry Larkin hitting his first grand slam (also at the game)

    3. Game 2 in San Francisco in 2012. Never been so confident in my life after that game…. this makes me sad

    2. Joey Votto the entire second half of 2016 when he decided to stop makin gouts. Batted 408, obp 490 and slugged 668.

    1. Todd Benzinger catching final out in game 4 1990.

    HM: Joey Votto interview in the Mountie uniform!!!

  10. Votto4life

    5. The day the Reds acquired Ken Griffey Jr.

    4. George Foster scoring from third base. It was the game winning play in the 1972 NLCS

    3. The Reds winning the 1990 World Series

    2. The Reds winning the 1975 World Series

    1. Going to Red games with my dad. He didn’t know a lot about baseball, but he followed the Reds because I did. He died in 2014 and I miss him ever single day.

    1) The bratwurst at Riverfront.
    2) Taking the water taxi across the Ohio to the Newport strip clubs after a Red’s game.
    3) Sitting in the “Top Six” (or was it the Top Three?) cheap seats in an otherwise empty stadium as the Reds were on their way to losing 100 games. Again
    4) The mettwurst at Riverfront.
    5) Sitting behind Marge Schott and having her light my pal’s cig with her own. While it was still in her mouth.
