I care only a little about the Reds and less about the Marlins, but I loved Diehards.

Any sportscaster who refers to a late season game between cellar-dwelling teams as meaningless should read this and rethink his script.

I went to Reds games with my father. The greatest thrill was toward the end of the game. We'd run to take front-row seats from departing fans. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

You were mistaken in saying that Todd Hundley set the major league home run record for catchers with 41 in 1996 (INSIDE BASEBALL, Sept. 7). My Johnny Bench baseball card says otherwise. In '70 Bench hit 45 homers.
