The Reds will remember former manager Sparky Anderson with a video tribute. Anderson, the Hall of Fame skipper for Cincinnati and the Tigers, died in November at the age of 76.
Current Reds manager Dusty Baker misses Anderson and considered him a friend.
“Once I started managing and coaching, I got closer to Sparky,” Baker said on Thursday morning. “There were times I could call Sparky and ask him for advice about anything. I really miss the fact he’s not available to talk to.”
