Six six six

Reds who've worn number 6: Ed Bailey (1957-1958,1960), Johnny Edwards (1963), Woody Woodward (1969), Bob Barton (1973), Jeff Sovern (1976), Alex Grammas CH (1978), Bill Fischer CH (1979-1981,1983), Bo Diaz (1987), Ron Gant (1995), Ryan Freel (2000-2008), Drew Stubbs (2009-present)

The number of television and radio broadcasters the Reds apparently feel they need is 6.

The number of years the Reds had to go as "Redlegs" due to political paranoia was 6. (1954-1959)

The number of times in the seventies the Reds finished with a season record above .600 is 6. (1970, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976). Just think about that. This Reds decade has seen only one team finish over .500 and the Machine finished over .600 six times!!!

Six was Barry Larkin's position. He'll know if he goes into the Hall this year on the 6th of January. That's the Epiphany, and the Baseball Writers better have one of those when they're voting.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 600th homer in a Reds uni. There were 6 people in the stands in Miami that day.

Leatherpants, Bud Selig, Don Fehr, and Scott Boras all have three sixes marked on their foreheads.
