OffseasonEdit

  • December 7, 1995: Chris Sabo was signed as a Free Agent with the Cincinnati Reds.[1]
  • January 2, 1996: Eric Davis was signed as a Free Agent with the Cincinnati Reds.[2]
  • January 9, 1996: Mike Kelly was traded by the Atlanta Braves to the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named later and Chad Fox. The Cincinnati Reds sent Ray King (June 11, 1996) to the Atlanta Braves to complete the trade.[3]
  • January 20, 1996: Vince Coleman signed as a Free Agent with the Cincinnati Reds.[4]
  • February 26, 1996: Joe Oliver was signed as a Free Agent with the Cincinnati Reds.[5]
  • February 26, 1996: Damon Berryhill was released by the Cincinnati Reds.[6]

Regular seasonEdit

  • Opening Day (April 1) – Seven pitches into the first game of the season, at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, home plate umpire John McSherry collapses on the field and dies of a massive heart attack.[7] The game between the Reds and Montreal Expos is postponed, along with the rest of the games scheduled for that day. Reds owner Marge Schott later comes under fire for wanting the game in Cincinnati to continue despite the tragedy (and against the wishes of the players on both teams), saying that she felt "cheated" when it was canceled.

Opening Day lineupEdit

Note: the two lineups have multiple differences, as the Expos had scheduled right-hander Pedro Martínez to start on April 1; he was replaced by left-hander Jeff Fassero for the April 2 game.
