There are very few corners with more baseball history than the corner of Findlay and Western in Cincinnati. Today it is nothing more than an off ramp and a parking lot. Located about a mile due north of today's Great American Ballpark, much of the modern day history of the Reds (prior to the Big Red Machine) happened here. This is where Eddie Lombardi became a Hall of Famer behind the plate... where Ted Kluszewski hit a Major League Leading 49 HR and a Major League Leading 141 RBI's and batted .326 only to come in 2nd to Willie Mays in MVP voting that nearly caused the Queen City to erupt... and this is where Pete Rose, Tony Perez and Johnny Bench began their careers that would forever be enshrined in the history books (for both great and bad).
