History: The Reds grabbed the National League flag in 1940, finishing 12 games ahead of Leo Durocher’s Brooklyn Dodgers. Cincinnati’s Frank McCormick thrilled the Crosley faithful with a league-leading 191 hits, and Cincy hurler Bucky Walters won 22 games. The Reds opted for a plain-front jacket in ’40, but don’t be fooled...they made their statement on the back!
