THURSDAY – BETTER OFF RED TRIVIA: FINAL ROUND

Congratulations to Zack J. for being randomly chosen as the winner who correctly identified all 12 distinguishable men in Reds uniforms on the 1981 Reds Media Guide (George Foster twice, Dave Collins, Dan Driessen, Ray Knight, John McNamara, Tom Hume, Johnny Bench, Mario Soto, David Concepcion, Tom Seaver, Ken Griffey, Frank Pastore).

The following is the final Trivia question of the day:

Since 1970, how many times has the Reds manager appeared on the cover of the Reds Media Guide and on which years’ editions of the guide did he appear? (hint – not a “trick question”, thus, more than one)

I will randomly choose one winner and that lucky duck will get one Sean Casey bobblehead and one Joey Votto bobblehead.  The winner will be announced Friday (6/22).

*If you’ve already won today, you’re not eligible to participate.

Thanks to all of you who participated.  I had fun today!

Expect good news. 

Go Reds!

Jamie
