    Being born in 1980, I missed seeing the BRM in action on the field. My favorite memory was this season, when the Reds did an amazing job bringing the Great Eight together for a wondeful ceremony. Great job from the Reds and amazing seeing those guys together.

    Just watching “Charlie Hustle” are my best memories of the BRM! He personified the team with his enthusiasm. They were definitely the greatest 8 players ever assembled but Pete gave them personality and connected the fans with the team.

    I was born in 86 so I didn’t witness it personally. My favorite memory of them however is hearing stories if how good they were from my father in law. One of the few things we’ve been able to bond on other than the love of his daughter is our love for the reds!

    My favorite BRM moment was seeing them in my first Reds game in July 1977 vs the Cubs at Wrigley Field. As a 9 year old, it’s was incredible to see them all (of course Big Dog) was gone but Driessen had taken over but for this game, Mike Lum played at 1st. However the first home run I ever saw was Foster’s 32nd of his awesome 1977 season

    While I was born in 1984 and not around for the BRM, my fondest memories of the BRM are that of my father. Telling stories of going to Riverfront and watching the games. Listening to them on the radio and the one story that I will always remember from my father was him saying,

    “No matter what the score was, or how much the Reds were down by, or how many innings were left in the game. You watched and heard the game and you KNEW they were going to come back and win. Sure enough, more times than not, they always would”

    I can still remember seeing/hearing my dad say these words.

    I remember playing t-ball and baseball as a 7 or 8 year old kid back in Toledo, Ohio and every kid on the team wanted to be Pete Rose or Johnny Bench. I was a catcher. Guess which one I wanted to be?

    I unfortunately was not alive to witness the Big Red Machine Era. But my favorite memories are just seeing all the highlights from that Era. I enjoy seeing clips of Pete Rose diving head first in to bases, seeing the clip of him barreling in to Ray Fosse during the 1970 All-Star Game at Riverfront Stadium. Seeing Johnny Bench, Tony Perez and George Foster blasting home runs. Every highlight from the Big Red Machine is my favorite memory!

    Was born after the run of the BRM, but love watching videos of that club. One memory I always lived watching is when Rose would slam the ball on the ground after catching the final out of the inning at 1st base.

    I was born in ’85, but I’ll never forget seeing rose diving in to 3rd base or the photo of the great 8 holding their bats along the baseline, or the one of Johnny Bench holding eight baseballs in one hand!

    My favorite memory is watching the World Series in 1975 and 1976. I was just 10 then and I fell in love with Pete Rose, Johnny Bench and the whole team. I am still a big Reds fan today.

    My first world series in 1976 ..watching Pete Rose, johnny Bench

    My favorite moment was watching the great eight come to GABP last year. It was a really powerfull moment when they stepped onto the field and it reminded us all of the greatest baseball team to ever play. Moments like these are why I’m proud to be a reds fan.

    My favorite memory is that dynasty turning a generation of baseball fans into Reds fans. We see other “national teams” like the Cowboys, Steelers, Packers, Red Wings, ans Lakers, and it’s good to have one ourselves.
