Redsfest 2010: Lee May

After getting scribbles from Oester and Power, Joshua and I decided to take advantage of our Hall of Fame Membership and mingle with former Reds stars in a less crowded environment. We were reminded as we entered the lounge (what Joshua called the “VIP section”) that while photographs were welcome, we were not allowed to ask for autographs back there.

We only took photos with two players, Lee May and another which will be posted tomorrow. There were several others hanging out, though–Tommy Helms, Jim Maloney, and Jerry Lynch among them.

May was a better than average player, but is probably most remembered for being used as tradebait in 1971 to lure Joe Morgan, Jack Billingham, and Cesar Geronimo away from Houston. Talk about a lopsided deal!
