Happy Reds birthday, Ron Oester!
May 5, 1956
Ron Oester was a lifetime Cincinnatian. Born in Cincinnati, he played high school ball at Withrow High School, and played his entire big league career for the Reds. He almost became the Reds manager in 2001, but the team low-balled him and ended up signing Bob Boone to skipper the team. Oester was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2014 along with Dave Parker, Ken Griffey, Jr., and 19th century star Jake Beckley.
