Cincinnati Reds Tickets
The Cincinnati Reds entered the Major League in 1882. The team was originally part of the American League but switched to the National League in 1890. The Big Red Machine, as they were called in the 1970s, won four NL pennants from 1970 to 1975 and two World Series Championships in 1975 and 1976. The Reds left their home at Riverfront Stadium in 2003 for the newly constructed Great American Ball Park. Famous Reds players include Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Tony Pérez, and Joe Morgan.
Great American Ball Park, Home to the Cincinnati Reds
The Cincinnati Reds have called Great American Ball Park home since 2003. The stadium is named after the Great American Insurance Group and is located in downtown Cincinnati with panoramas of the city, the Ohio River, and Mt. Adams visible from many of the seats. The stadium's street address is 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, named after the Reds pitcher and broadcaster who passed away in 2007. In the park's main entrance plaza are statues of four Reds legends pretending to play baseball: Joe Nuxhall, Ted Kluszewski, Frank Robinson, and Ernie Lombardi.
Cincinnati Reds and the National League Central
The Cincinnati Reds have played in the National League Central since 1994. During that time the team has won two division titles but has failed to capture a National League pennant or World Series championship. The Reds look to the Cleveland Indians of the AL Central as their in-state rivals, with whom they play a pre-season game called the Ohio Cup. Although the Ohio Cup was halted after interleague play began in 1997, it was reinstated in 2008. Other major players in the NL Central include the Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros, Milwaukee Brewers, Pittsburgh Pirates, and St. Louis Cardinals.
Cincinnati Reds 2012 Team Outlook
With other teams in the National League Central suffering from the loss of key players, the Cincinnati Reds decided to go all-in this year by trading away some of their top prospects for players that can help them win right now. The Reds conducted a blockbuster trade with the San Diego Padres, obtaining star pitcher Mat Latos in exchange for several young players, including prospect Yonder Alonso. In addition, they traded Travis Wood to the Cubs for Sean Marshall, one of the better relief pitchers in the game. With first baseman Joey Votto, the 2010 National League MVP, only two years away from free agency, the Reds are striking while the iron is hot.
