Bumpus Jones - wikimedia.org

On this day in Reds history, Bumpus Jones threw the first no-hitter in team history.

On this day in 1892, Bumpus Jones made his major league debut with the Reds and threw a no-hitter, which was the first in team history. He would throw only thirty-three more innings in his entire major league career.

Also on this day in 1892, former Red Heinie Peitz made his major league debut with the St. Louis Browns (Cardinals) at the age of 21. Peitz would later play nine seasons in Cincinnati. He would also catch the Reds' next two no-hitters.

On this day in 1957, the Redlegs sold righty Bud Podbielan to the Cleveland Indians. Podbielan had spent parts of five seasons in Cincinnati as a swingman. He started twenty-four games in 1953 and '54, and also made nearly fifty relief appearances as a Redleg.

On this day in 1960, the Reds traded catcher Dutch Dotterer to the Kansas City Athletics in exchange for catcher Danny Kravitz. The trade seems a very odd one from a distance. Both players were backup catchers. One was twenty-eight years old; the other was twenty-nine. The trade, as far as I can tell, had no effect on either team in the 1961 season.

On this day in 1982, the Reds traded centerfielder Mike Ramsey and cash considerations to the Dodgers in exchange for righty Ted Power, who had six good years with Cincinnati as a reliever. Power is now the pitching coach of the Louisville Bats as well.
