Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cincinnati Reds, also known as the Cincinnati Red Stockings, were a professional baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio that played from 1876-80. The Reds were a charter member of the National League. The Reds began play in 1876, playing at Avenue Grounds. They were managed by player/manager Charlie Gould, and outfielder Charley Jones led the Cincinnati offense with 4 home runs and 38 runs batted in. This first Reds team finished a dismal 9-56, last in the new eight-team National League. In 1887, helmed by the managing trio of Lip Pike, Bob Addy, and Jack Manning, the Reds finished 6th in the National League. Pike, the second baseman, led the team with 4 home runs and rookie pitcher Bobby Mitchell led the team with 41 strikeouts.show more
