As the Reds go into postseason play for the second time in three seasons, here's some playoff history courtesy of Reds Hall of Fame Chief Curator Chris Eckes.
The 1976 team went undefeated in the postseason, the only team to do that since Major League Baseball went to divisional play. The Reds swept the Phillies in three games in the National League Championship and the Yankees in four in the World Series that year. Eckes says prior to that run, Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson had a prophetic discussion with reporters:
A recent report suggests Cincinnati set-up a $15 million fund to attract grocery stores to city neighborhoods that are currently described as food deserts. These are geographic areas with low access to affordable, healthy food.
A study finds there are 24 supermarkets in the Cincinnati metropolitan area, putting the region below the national average by about 10 stores.
