What baseball position did George play when trying out for the Reds

Post by Guest on Sun 03 Jun 2012, 12:52

I was just curious if anyone knew the baseball position George played in high school and when he went on to try out for the Cincinnati Reds? Just curious.

I'n not sure what position he played in high school or to try out for Cincinnati Reds, but he did share once in an interview that to build his self-confidence he thought about not if he could hit the ball but how far he could hit it.

I thought once I read that he wanted to be a pitcher. I remember too that when he tried to hit the ball, they were coming way too fast, much faster than he could pitch and much faster than he was used to hitting.

Remember when Ellen DeGeneris had him on her show and the guys from the Cincinnati Reds showed up as a surprise? He looked like a kid in a candy shop.

That was such a cute show. And yes, he did look like a kid in the candy store! I enjoyed all of her attempts to get him - spraying the basketball with "model" scent, Dolly Parton cut out, the dancers, the cheerleaders, the band, etc. I bet he giggled alot when he watched!

Thank you for sharing, Cindigirl. Ellen did a fabulous job with arranging this "George" lure. However, I am sensing even more going on within this sequence. cyclops

I know it's hard to conceive, because we all know that Johnny Bench is essentially MLB (Major League Baseball's) greatest catcher ever and Joe Morgan is considered MLB's greatest second baseman of all time. Talk about smokin' HOT! WOW! Amazing! Thumbs up! I can understand George's esteeming reverance to these two players who were apart of Cincinnati's BIG Red Machine that championed MLB's World Series in 1975 & 1976.

I am glad they wore their jerseys with their designated numbers. I am sensing that Johnny's number 5 and Joe 's number 8 are significant. Please note that the REDS managers have officially retired both of these numbers from their roster. I study numerology. Reading Interestingly, numbers are symbols that carry unique vibrations and can be analyzed to discover patterns of life. I suppose I am the only geek that noticed and that is okay. Oi, you!

I know Melbert. Shocked But just be thankful that you can still eat donuts without any digestive or malabsorption issues. I had to give up my daily 4 Dunkin Munchkins, because now I have to go gluten free. This is truly difficultand I do think it is affecting my naturally superior mental powers. clown

Is it OK to ask for a demonstration?

Looked through several Clooney Biographies (I have all that have been written) and couldn't find any mention of a position. However, I believe (MO) thatback then, when you tried out for a Major League team, you were tried in "all" positions, and when they decided you could hit the ball well, and run well, then they looked to see what position you'd be best at. I think it's different now.

Hmh1108, thanks for responding, but you are the one with
the 'Superior Mental Powers' you tell me.
Blow me away with astonishment. I promise I'll reply.
You will know if giving up your daily 4 Dunkin Munchkins has affected you Wink

Love your avatar! sunny
