After spending nearly 90 historical years one and a half miles "inland" on the corner of Western and Findlay... the Cincinnati Reds moved to banks of scenic the Ohio River in 1972 to what was a "state of the art ballpark" named Riverfront Stadium (aka Cinergy Field). The only problem with moving to such a stunning location was that... the ballpark was entirely enclosed. It wasn't until 2000 when they had to knock the grandstand down in Centerfield to make room for the construction of this new stadium, that Cincinnati's fans realized what they were missing all these years... trapped in a giant donut shaped and extremely ordinary grandstand with absolutely no view of their stunning river sitting just outside.
