Fun Cards: 2012 Topps Tom Browning
HAPPY OPENING DAY!
The Cincinnati Reds opened the baseball season on the road only twice in the 20th century (and only four times in the history of the franchise). In 1966, it was the rain that forced the Reds to start in Philadelphia; in 1990, a labor dispute between the owners and players delayed the season and the Reds played their first game in Houston’s Astrodome. Mr. Perfect, Tom Browning, was the Opening Day starter that year, and though he didn’t get the decision, Cincinnati won 8-4 over the Astros. Browning started the season for the Reds three times in his career, going 1-0 (but the Reds did win all three games).
