Cincinnati Red Legs

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

From 1954 through 1959 the Cincinnati Reds were known as the Cincinnati Red Legs. The name change was due to the "Red Scare" across the country during the Cold War, when "Reds" was seen as a dirty term by reactionary forces. In 1960 tradition and rationality won out and the Reds name was restored.
