Two teams, no worries.
They do it in New York, right? Los Angeles, Chicago ….
…. and in CINCINNATI?
Both called themselves the Reds.The ’91 American Association @Reds were known as “Kelly’s Killers,” led by the indomitable Michael Joseph “King” Kelly, and played at a new facility on the Ohio River, East End Park, the precursor to Schmidt Fields.
(Much love at this stage is extended to Cam Miller, Jim Farmer and the Society for Cincinnati Sports Research for this fabulous documentary …. here’s Part 1 of “Kelly’s Killers: The Forgotten Cincinnati Baseball Team.”)
