Cincinnati’s 150-Year Opening Day History: The Hoopla Started With A Parade
Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Reds baseball! Just in time for the 2019 celebration of the first professional baseball team – our very own Red Stockings! – comes Randy Freking’s new book, Cincinnati’s 150-Year Opening Day History: The Hoopla Started with a Parade.
The book is NOT about the games that were played each year, although many accounts of game action are included. You can find books detailing the actual games elsewhere.
This 350-page review of Opening Day traditions will appeal to die-hard Reds fans and anyone else interested in Cincinnati history. With dozens of seldom-seen photographs, it makes a perfect coffee-table book.
