Beau Townsend is Official Car Provider for

A special thank you to our friends at Beau Townsend Ford in Vandalia for donating use of a new 2017 Ford Fusion for the 2017 baseball season. Special thanks to Larry Taylor for his generosity.

Larry Taylor is a huge sports fan and an even bigger Cincinnati Reds fan. He is a man who loves his community and is always willing to step up and help out in any way he can.

It is always a pleasure to stop into Larry’s office and chat about the Reds. His knowledge of the Reds, past and present, is awesome.

And if you are looking for a new car, Beau Townsend should be your first stop.

Again, many thanks to Larry and Beau Townsend.



Thanks so much for your interest in Upon learning near Opening Day last year that Hal wasn’t going to Spring Training for the first time in 43 years or covering the Reds, we put together this website and started a GoFundMe page to help Hal cover his travel costs to home games. Thanks to the help of our great 2016 Supporters, we made it through.

It’s our hope that we can line up enough corporate and private sponsorship so Hal can make it through the 2017 season. You can click on the PayPal button and donate. Through PayPal, you can donate with your credit card or PayPal account. Any contribution is appreciated. While we intend to keep the site free for reading, we will have a forum where you can ask questions of Hal for anyone that contributes $25 or more. For contributions of $100 or more, Hal will send you an autographed copy of his book. If you own or are part of a business, we are also open to corporate sponsorship opportunities.

Hal wants to keep on writing. With your help, we can make that happen. Please consider supporting Hal
