Cincinnati Reds History

The Cincinnati Reds team seems to have been established in 1869, back then they were called the ‘Red Stockings’. Unfortunately, the team ended up dissolving after only two years of being professional. In 1875, the Red Stockings made a comeback again. However, they were expelled from the National League in 1880.


This happened because the league had put a ban on beer and Sunday baseball. All the other team owners had signed the pledge however, the Cincinnati president, W. H. Kennett refused to do so which led to the team being expelled. A new league was made in 1881, which was the American Association. Cincinnati Red Stockings became a part of the league and won the first championship tournament in it. The Cincinnati Red Stockings joined the National League again in 1890 and changed their name to what it is today, the Cincinnati Reds. They won 5 World Series Titles and many more titles since then.


Cincinnati Reds Owner

The current owner of Cincinnati Reds is Robert Castellini also known as Bob Castellini. He is an American businessman who is the chairman of Castellini company and is based in Cincinnati. He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 23, 1941. Carl Lindner was the former owner of the Reds, however, after a losing streak where the team lost five consecutive seasons, Linder decided to sell the team. It was sold to Castellini for $270 million. Under the ownership of Castellini, the Reds began anew.
