The End Game

September 2, 2008 the Reds, the first professional baseball team (1869), were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates, around just about as long as the Reds seeing who would end up in last place. Hot, humid night, thunderstorms all around, lightning in the distance - you expected Robert Redford to step up and hit a homerun into the lights, like in the movie.  A local insurance company bought the naming rights to the stadium, so it's the Great American Ballpark, after all. It was the dead center of America - and when it was over there was the walk across the iron bridge over the dark Ohio River, with the mist rising from the darks waters, to where we parked - a half-mile away in Newport, Kentucky.
