Publisher Comments:

The 1975 Cincinnati Reds, also known as the and#8220;Big Red Machine,and#8221; are not just one of the most memorable teams in baseball historyand#8212;they are unforgettable. While the Reds dominated the National League from 1972 to 1976, it was the and#8217;75 team that surpassed them all, winning 108 games and beating the Boston Red Sox in a thrilling 7-game World Series. Led by Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson, the teamand#8217;s roster included other legends such as Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Pand#233;rez, Ken Griffey Sr., and Dave Concepciand#243;n. The 1975 Reds were notably disciplined and clean-cut, which distinguished them from the increasingly individualistic players of the day.

and#160;
The Great Eight commemorates the people and events surrounding this outstanding baseball team with essays on team management and key aspects and highlights of the season, including Pete Roseand#8217;s famous position change. This volume gives Reds fans complete biographies of all the teamand#8217;s players, relives the enthralling 1975 season, and celebrates a team that is consistently ranked as one of the best teams in baseball history.
