Two Reds Fans with Good Seats, 1993 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for April 30, 2018

IMG_2133I like sitting in the second deck and in the front row. I like the view slightly raised and with nobody in front of me. These two Cincinnati Reds fans were sitting a few rows ahead of me and my dad in August 1993.

They had good seats.

Giancarlo Stanton will get his hits. Don’t worry about him. Yankee fans should be concerned about their pitching depth for this season.

Meanwhile the Reds were right to fire Bryan Price but they should have done it nearly 2 years ago.

Better late than never in this episode of Sully Baseball.

Riverfront Stadium concourse, Cincinnati, 1993 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for April 10, 2018

IMG_2487.jpg

I was very taken by Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati. Sure it was a cookie cutter park. But it was the home to the Big Red Machine. The greatest teams in Cincinnati sports history called the place home.

Plus its setting along the river was lovely and Cincinnati is a nice city.

And unlike Shea Stadium, Three Rivers Stadiums and other concrete donuts made in the late 1960’s, early 1970’s, Riverfront Stadium had a wide concourse around the stadium that was open air.

When my dad and I would go get concessions, we were not in a claustrophobic, cramped setting. It was open where we could see the river and get a sense of where we were geographically.

Do not disrespect all concrete donuts. Riverfront had character.
