In the Dugout
March 23, 2008 - In the dugout of Ed Smith Stadium.
From left to right: then-prospect Drew Stubbs, former player and current front office staffer Eric Davis, former Yankees first baseman Andy Phillips, and super utility man Ryan Freel.
The Reds have since moved to Arizona, and Ed Smith Stadium has been renovated for the new tenants, the Baltimore Orioles.
Eric Davis is the only one in the photo who is still with the Reds. Drew Stubbs made it to the big leagues, then was traded to Cleveland, then to the Rockies. Andy Phillips played in Japan, then retired from playing to coach at his alma mater, Alabama. And Ryan Freel died a year ago today.
Rest in peace, Freelie.
