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)

*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!

TRIVIA FOR A SHIRT ANSWER

Courtesy of Redleg Journal by Rhodes & Snyder…

September 4, 1999 – “The Reds club a National League record nine home runs in a 22-3 drubbing of the Phillies at Veterans Stadium.  Eight different Cincinnati hitters connected for homers, which broke the major league record.”

Eddie Taubensee hit two home runs, and Dmitri Young, Jeffrey Hammonds, Greg Vaughn, Aaron Boone, Pokey Reese, Brian Johnson and Mark Lewis each added one.  After falling behind 2-0 in the first inning, the Reds scored three runs in the second, one in the third, one in the fourth, nine in the fifth, one in the sixth, one in the seventh, and six in the eighth.”

Congratulations to this week’s winner, @GCoch!

Don’t fret, we’ll play again next week.
