Football Sunday spent working ...

at Great American Ball Park.

Writing a Reds season wrap-up column while keeping a watchful eye on the Bengals/Steelers on my TV monitor.

It's a beautifully sunny afternoon at the ballpark. All things considered, I always hate to see the home portion of the baseball season come to a close.

Interesting tidbit in today's Reds game notes:

The Reds' six errors (I hear there should have been seven) committed last night were the most since April 5, 1971 when Bernie Carbo, Frank Duffy, Woody Woodward and Don Gullett combined for six miscues.

Woodward committed three errors at third base during that game, the first Opening Day contest played at Riverfront Stadium which opened mid-season 1970.

One Red has displayed some nifty glovework:

Scott Hatteberg's error in the fifth inning Sunday was his first since May 5, a 100-game stretch.
