It was a sell-out crowd at the Great American Ball Park on Sat., Sept. 22, 2012 when the oldest team in major league baseball clinched the division title for the second time in three years.
The Cincinnati Reds crushed the San Francisco Giants in a 6-0 match up before a hometown crowd in excess of 40,000. By doing so, they owned the rights to the title of 2012 National League Central Division Champions.
As a stiff breeze fueled by the mighty Ohio River swept over the ball park that evening, Reds fans could only look ahead to the post-season playoffs and wonder, “Will this be the year? Will the Cincinnati Reds make it to the World Series and be the first team to win since 1990?”
Congratulations to the Red Legs!
