Background

Cincinnati has long been one of the bedrocks of professional baseball, featuring unparalleled players and managers — from Joe Nuxhall to Frank Robinson — from Bid McPhee to Johnny Bench — from Sparky Anderson to Lou Piniella. 

Narrated by Marty Brennaman, Reds Memories: The Greatest Moments In Cincinnati Reds History DVD features more than 70 minutes of the main program presentation and more than 30 minutes of bonus content.

Through Major League Baseball Productions’ unparalleled access to a vast collection of game footage tracing back to the first decade of the 20th Century, vintage films and interviews, Reds Memories provides a comprehensive look at the Cincinnati Reds, highlighting great moments and a team that, for more than 140 years, has brought great joy to baseball fans.

Major League Baseball Productions and Shout! Factory commemorate these October heroes, fascinating characters and rich history through the official DVD release of Reds Memories: The Greatest Moments In Cincinnati Reds History.

Fans will embark on a journey across three centuries of baseball highlighted by remarkable Reds performances in this DVD collection.  Nine pennants, five World Series titles and countless “what if’s,” this proud franchise is celebrated with a vibrancy that has been at the center of professional baseball in the Queen City of Ohio. 

Cincinnati and professional baseball go back a long way. Reds history begins May 4, 1869, when the Red Stockings debuted as the nation’s first professional team. And there is quite a litany of “firsts” in Reds Memories, an incredibly detailed compilation of Cincinnati Reds history.

The 1919 World Series title — the first for the franchise — is brought to life like never before.  Watch Johnny Vander Meer become the first and only man to throw back-to-back no-hitters.  Return to that evening in 1935 when Cincinnati became the first Major League team to host an evening baseball game.  Witness the rise and fall of the amazing Big Red Machine — the first team in the division era to sweep the postseason. And, of course, fans will relive the wire-to-wire journey of the 1990 World Series championship team.

As the first-ever detailed, complete compilation of Cincinnati Reds history, Reds Memories: The Greatest Moments In Cincinnati Reds History DVD will be sold at retailers nationwide, the Reds Team Shop by Majestic at Great American Ballpark, the Reds Hall of Fame shops and online at MLB.com (the official website of Major League Baseball) and Reds.com.
