We've Got the Band Red
Red the Movie
and...Who Can Forget 99 Red Balloons
for our German readers, I offer up to you this- 99 Luft Balloons
Hall of Famer ('89) who won 2 titles as a player, and 3 more as a manager/coach. Joined the Civilian Conservation Corps and at the age of 16 had a nail ricochet into his left eye. Doctors thought he would lose the eye, but Red refused to let them take it out. It gave him troubles thenceforth.
Yeah-not only do we not have guys named Red in the game anymore, but neither do we have TOUGH guys, either. So put that in your pipe...
Another Chicago White Sox player, this one's a Hall of Famer (Class of '64).
Red threw a complete game to pick up the victory in Game 4 of the 1946 World Series against who else but the Red Sox. He only had two wins that regular season, and that World Series game was his only career post-season appearance.
...and finally, one more Red-
Negro Leagues legend James "Red" Moore only played seven seasons before his playing career ended prematurely because of military service. During his playing days, the first baseman was known as a great defender, despite the fact that the lefty often had to take a right-handed glove and turn it inside out in order to play defense. Moore, who was born in Atlanta, received the nickname 'Red' because of his fair skin, which would turn red after a few innings on the field. The former Atlanta Firecracker was drafted by the Braves in a special Negro Leagues draft in 2008-the picture above commemorating the special occasion.
