The Cincinnati Reds are a Major League Baseball team in the National League Central division, based in Cincinnati, Ohio and playing home games Great American Ball Park situated on the banks of the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati. The Reds were founded back in 1881 and are the second oldest major league club to have continuously played in one city. The team was originally called the Cincinnati Red Stockings before becoming the Reds in 1890. From 1953 through 1958, their name was changed to the Redlegs before returning to their current moniker.
The Reds won their first World Series in 1919, and went on to capture it four more times, in 1940, 1975, 1976 and 1990. In 1919 they were managed by Pat Moran and led by Hall of Fame outfielder Edd Roush and third baseman Heinie Groh. Two decades later the team won the World Series headed by manager Bill McKechnie and led by catcher Ernie Lombardi and pitchers Paul Derringer and Bucky Walters. Their peak years came with the team that was known as “The Big Red Machine” in the 1970s, headed by manager Sparky Anderson with starring players that included Johnny Bench, Pete Rose and Bobby Tolan. Finally, in 1975 the team won the World Series for the first time in three decades with the help of Bench, Rose, Joe Morgan, Ken Griffey and Cesar Geronimo. They won again the following year, but it took another 15 before winning their fifth and most recent World Series title under manager Lou Piniella and led by World Series MVP pitcher Jose Rijo, National League Silver Slugger Award winner Barry Larkin and outfielder Billy Hatcher.
