The Cincinnati Reds Caravan came to Indiana over the weekend, with stops both Friday and Saturday. Friday featured Jay Bruce, while Saturday featured Homer Bailey. The RHM crew decided that driving all over the state and standing in line for hours was a fun pastime and headed to both Bloomington to see Bruce and Indianapolis to see Bailey.
The event was well-attended, with the line at the mall stretching throughout the food court. The best moment came during the brief question-and-answer section before the autographs started. A fan asked Corky Miller if he could throw out notorious base-stealer Billy Hamilton.
“Yep,” Miller said. “I could definitely catch him. If he stole 100, he might get on two or three times, but that would be the pitcher’s fault.”
Miller, with his fu manchu facial hair is always a crowd favorite. I look forward to seeing him managing.
Here are some pictures from the Bloomington stop.
