The team’s origin can be traced back to the expulsion from the National League of an earlier which bore the same name in the past. Cincinnati now became in the year 1876 one of the charter members of the new National League. One Bob Castellini has been known to be the Chief Executive Officer of the Reds since the year 2006. The Reds are known to establish an overall win-loss record of 10,713-10,501.
You might find it interesting to know that since its establishment, the Reds have won 10 division crowns, nine National League pennants, one American Association pennant, and five World Cup Series championships. At the time, the team was known to hold their home games at the 2003-built Great American Ball Park.
