johnny bench night

Johnny Bench is 63 now, and made a short speech before the game.  They named a street around the ballpark for him.  It was September 17, 2011.  On September 17, 1983, the Reds had the first "Johnny Bench Night" when he retired.  It was a joy to see someone so devoted and excellent be celebrated with standing ovations.
