About Pete Rose
Pete Rose is a Cincinnati native who in his two stints with his hometown team, the Cincinnati Reds, set numerous MLB records, including most career hits with 4,256, earning him the nickname of the “Hit King”. He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1963, the National League MVP in 1973, and World Series MVP in 1975. He was a 17-time All-Star at five positions, a three-time National League batting champion, and was named to MLB’s All-Century Team. About Marty Brennaman Marty joined the Reds radio team in 1974 and, with broadcast partner Joe Nuxhall, quickly became a Cincinnati tradition. Between then and the time he called his last game in 2019, he was behind the microphone for, among other milestones, Hank Aaron’s record-tying 714th career home run, Tom Seaver’s only no-hitter, Pete Rose’s record-breaking 4,192, Tom Browning’s perfect game, Reds World Series wins in 1975, 1976, and 1990, and two no-hitters from Homer Bailey. In 2000, Brennaman won the Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasters from the Baseball Hall of Fame. About George Foster Drafted by the San Francisco Giants, George Foster was traded to the Reds in 1971 and by 1975 became part of the outfield with what we know now as the “Big Red Machine”. He was a five-time All-Star, leading the National League in home runs in 1977 and 1978. Foster also led RBI’s in 1976, 1977, and 1978. He was named the league’s Most Valuable Player in 1977 and since his retirement, has been active with charity work and as a motivational speaker.
