Happy Reds birthday, Jason LaRue!
March 19, 1974
Jason LaRue played eight seasons for the Reds before the Royals purchased his contract. After one year in Kansas City, LaRue signed with the St. Louis Cardinals and spent three years there. LaRue suffered a concussion in 2010 when Johnny Cueto kicked him in the head during a bench-clearing brawl between the Reds and Cardinals, forcing him to retire from the sport.
