2007 Baseball Trip - Saturday June 30 - Cincinnati

We left Pittsburgh at 9:30 and heading west passing through Wheeling, W Va. and Columbus, Ohio.  We then traveled south toward Cincinnati. We stopped in Blue Ash, OH at a replica of Crosley Field where the Reds played until 1970.  The field had the same dimensions as Crosley Field with the fences and the scoreboard.  We finally arrived at the Great American Ballpark at 5 PM.  The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum that was outside the stadium was quite impressive.  There was an exhibit featuring the accomplishments of Pete Rose.  The rest of the Museum featured artifacts covering the history of the Reds franchise since 1869.  The Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-1.

OK - a little disappointed in you here on your Pittsburgh entries!  Not a thing about Pam's diner. . .the best breakfasts on the trip!  I came home and on Tuesday had to make crepes for breakfast. . .but did not have fresh strawberries to accompany.  Ohh, the memory!
