Happy Reds birthday, Frank Viola!
April 19, 1960
Allegedly, Frank Viola made three appearances for the Reds in 1995; I have been unable to find photographic proof of this. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be great. But if it ain’t on Google, I doubt such proof exists. The first time Viola pitched in Riverfront Stadium, he was the starting pitcher for the American League All-Star squad in 1988. He faced six batters, and none reached based.
