    Unfortunately the 1990 season was the year before I was born. So, my favorite thing from the 1990 season was when the Great 8 were commemorated this year at a Reds game!

    Not much, just a simple pop foul to Todd Benzinger.

    My best memory of that season, and probably my greatest baseball memory of my life, was being at Riverfront for Game 6 of the NLCS. My parents, my brother, and I were in the bottom section of the red seats, behind home plate. I don’t remember a lot about the game, but the euphoria of the final out was like nothing else I’ve experienced in person. An amazing moment. I only wish I had been old enough to appreciate what was unfolding before us.

    Best 1990 memory was when Eric Davis hit homerun on his first at bat in the World Series. He surely Set the tone for the series and led the reds to a sweep of Oakland. Eric was my favorite ball player as a youngster! exciting player to watch.

    My favorite memory was being able to stay up late to watch the games and everyone was Oakland band wagon fans so I got to rub it in their faces. Lol.

    I was in Kindergarten when the Reds won the 1990 Workd Series. My favorite memories were when we went to the games, Chris Sabo always seemed to hit a home run.

    I remember watching the games and being allowed to stay up until they were over. I remember that the older kids in the neighborhood made it seem like the A’s were going flatten the Reds an once the Reds swept they had selective amnesia . After that i wore 25 in little league because of Benzinger.

    I was 11 years old and thinking that te Reds had no chance of beating the Bash Brothers. My dad made me go to bed around the 6th inning. I would sneak the radio under my pillow and listen to the rest of the games. I never really bought into the Ohio = Champions!! Even though the Reds were up 3 games to 0 I still thought we would choke and be the Bill Buckner of Mlb. Untill one magical night I heard those magical call. Benzinger backing and Calling and the 1990 World Championship belings to the Cincinnati Reds!!!!! Im 34 years old now and am hoping I can give my 3 year old boy Hope just like I did in 1990.

    If you’re a Reds fan, you only have to hear one phrase to remember that 1990 magical season – “Wire-to-Wire”

  10. Zach WNo Gravatar

    I was kind of young, but my favorite memory of the 1990 WS is when I got a signed copy of the 1990 WS Sports Illustrated with Chris Sabo on the cover signed by Chris. He was always my favorite player.

  11. Jon DaileyNo Gravatar

    Memory? Wow. A team of good players that for that year all hit their stride without much injury to crush everyone. Rijo, Browning have great years, guys like Morris and Duncan stepping up, Hatchet hitting 750 in the series, The Nasty Boys with ass hat Myers just coming into stride, Oliver playing the best years of his career, one play wonder Billy Bates for the win, not to miss Davis before injury, Larkin..the list goes on.

    Billy Bates scoring the winning run in game 2

  13. J.R. PriceNo Gravatar

    My favorite memory would simply be benzinger catching the foul ball to end the world series. I saw him at redsfest a few years ago and asked about the ball. He said it just sat in his basement for years. I think he eventually gave or loaned it to the reds hall of fame or something.

  14. Josh GNo Gravatar

    My favorite memory from the 1990 Wire-to-Wire season was Benzinger catching the last out and Marty saying, “Benzinger calling, and the 1990 world championship belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!”

  15. Roger Doseck IINo Gravatar

    My memory was from the playoff series against Pittsburgh. I was in the 3rd grade and my dad and I went to every home game. We were 3 rows from the top in of riverfront in right field. In game 6 when Braggs robbed the home run, we couldn’t see what happened. One guy had a little portable tv and we all crowed around to see the replay, it was great.

    Unfortunately, I was 2 and still living in Texas in 1990. But I always remember my dad, who grew up in Dayton, wearing a Reds hat all around the Dallas/Fort Worth area all the time. He wouldn’t introduce me to baseball and the Reds for another few years, but I’ve watched many, many highlights since and I wish I’d have been old enough to remember Dad cheering in our living room in Hurst as he watched.

    This was a true team. They may not have had the star power like the Athletics but everybody did their part from the bullpen to the starters to the position players. Baseball is the only pure game left. Little guys can beat the big guys. The last four years of baseball especially show this with star studded teams on paper such as Dodgers, Yankees, and Angels not being able to close it out and win the series. I understand that Cardinals, Giants and Red Sox are not small market teams but if you told me at the start of the year that any of those teams were going to win the World Series I would have laughed at you. In basketball a group of stars from Miami are going to beat a group of team players from Indiana the majority of the time. In football a team with an elite quarterback like Saints will beat a solid team like the Bengals most of the time when it really counts. Baseball gives my city hope, dreams, and a chance to succeed even though we cant buy our way into the playoffs by signing players like Cano and Ellsbury. There is no reason why the 2014 Reds can’t repeat what the 1990 team did and beat the odds to hang another banner in the Queen City.
