A Documentary about Cobb Field

Watching the trailer, the pace seems a little slow for my particular tastes, but I know there are plenty of baseball historians out there who would love nothing more than to spend their evening watching a documentary about Cobb field. And there are some faces that Reds fans will recognize.

Intrigued? Check out the post on Church of Baseball.

Not-so-Little Ray Ray

BubbaFan was kind enough to post pictures from a spring training game she attended, including some of one of my favorites, Ray “Little Ray Ray” Olmedo. And my, how’s he’s grown. Compare her photo to one from his Cincinnati days:

I suppose it’s not that surprising to see a guy fill out at age 28, but it’s just a little startling to me when I’m so used to thinking of the guy as “little Ray Ray.”
