There were countless great moments that occurred at the former Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati. It was the home of the Big Red Machine throughout the 1970s. The site of Pete Rose's record-breaking hit. Home of the 1990 World Series Champs. Scene of the thrilling 1999 pennant race. Fans of the Reds, you will love this panoramic view of the former home of your team!
With this poster, you are transported back to another great moment at the stadium. It was late in the 1998 season, the year of The Great Home Run Chase, and who was at bat? Mark McGwire of the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds were already out of the pennant race, but the stands are packed and everyone is on their feet. McGwire did not go deep that day...but we all know how his season ended.
Like all prints in photographer Rob Arra's Everlasting Images series, every detail of the ballpark is in perfect focus, and as you pan across the image you feel like you are actually there. For fans of the Reds, this item belongs in a nice frame in a prominent place on your wall.
