History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

"One of the Reds who won the only flag that was ever floated over a Cincinnati ball park -- Joe Sommer, is delighted with the Reds of 1909. This survivor of the champs of 1882 declared, 'While you might not call the Reds a hard-hitting team, they are fast and clever. You'll see them get away with a good many games on four or five hits this year. They're a lot who know how to get around the bases." - Sporting Life of May 8, 1909, quoting old-timer Joe Sommer
