Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Riverfront Stadium: Home Of The Big Red Machine" is a compact, 128-page paperback by Mike Shannon (first printed in 2003). It breezily takes the reader on a word and picture tour of Riverfront Stadium, which served as the home of the Cincinnati Reds' National League baseball club for 32-and-a-half seasons (1970-2002).

Riverfront is (was) a ballpark I have very fond memories of. It was considered by some critics to be a drab, lifeless "cookie-cutter" stadium design (or, as some people called it, a "concrete doughnut"). But, in my personal view (which is admittedly a view with a built-in "pro-Cincinnati Reds' bias"), Riverfront was a grand place to watch a baseball game. A first-row green-level seat right behind home plate afforded a sensational view of the baseball diamond (and was a good place to possibly snag a foul ball to boot).

I witnessed many games from the brightly-colored blue, green, yellow, and red seats at Riverfront, mostly during the 1970s, which were the days when Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" was winning baseball championships at a dizzying pace -- six N.L. West titles during the decade of the '70s, along with four N.L. Pennants, and two World Series victories (1975 and 1976).

The Reds added one more World Series-winning trophy during the Riverfront era, when they swept past the Oakland A's in four straight games in 1990. So, Riverfront was certainly a place with a rich, winning tradition during its lifespan.

Riverfront Stadium was renamed "Cinergy Field" on September 9th, 1996. But for most long-time Reds' faithful who fondly recall the "Big Red Machine" days of the '70s, the park will forever be remembered as only "Riverfront Stadium".

I like the book that I remember 1975 World Series (1975 Red Sox).
