Cesar Geronimo – DRSEA Board of Trustees
Known for his great defense, Cesar Geronimo tracked down fly balls with long “gazelle-like” strides in center field for three pennant-winning Reds’ teams. In his nine seasons with Cincinnati, “The Big Red Machine” won five division titles and two World Championships. His surprising homer off Luis Tiant in Game Six of the 1976 World Series tied the game and set the stage for Carlton Fisk’s dramatics later in extra innings. Overshadowed by the others in the Reds “Great Eight” starting lineup of that era, Geronimo won four Gold Glove Awards.
He is also working on a project to bring baseball to public schools in the DR.
