BASELINE ITEMS, TRIVIA FOR A SHIRT WINNER

 Greetings from a slightly soggy GABP…

…..

THIS DATE IN REDS HISTORY (courtesy of Redleg Journal by Rhodes & Snyder)

1995  “Barry Larkin is named the Most Valuable Player of the National League.”

“Larkin had 281 points in the voting to finish ahead of Dante Bichette, who had 251.  Larkin received 11 first place votes out of 28 cast.  Larkin hit .319 with 15 homers, 98 runs scored and 51 stolen bases.  The .319 average is the highest of any shortstop in club history with at least 400 at-bats, and the stolen base mark is a modern club record.”

1991  “A month after the Senate approves the controversial nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, the Reds swap Jack Armstrong, Scott Scudder and Joe Turek to the Indians for Greg Swindell.

1886 “The Reds and St. Louis complete the first ever trade of reserved players.  The Reds sent Jack Boyle to St. Louis for Hugh Nicol.”

“The diminutive Nicol, who stood just 5 feet 4 inches, was born in Campsie, Scotland.”

According to the 1973 Reds Media Guide:

“Dubbed the ‘The Cobra’ because of his uncoiling batting style, (this man) finised third in the Eastern League batting race last year with a .322 average.  ‘He’s a natural born hitter,’ Sparky Anderson noted.  ‘He’ll hit .300 in any league he plays.”
