That Time a fan Almost Fell to His Death at Riverfront Stadium in 1981

You’ve probably heard about that time a fan almost fell from the upper reaches of Riverfront Stadium in 1981 and almost died, but didn’t. Or maybe you haven’t.

Anyways, I grew up at Riverfront. I have an art portrait of Riverfront in my basement to pay homage to the first ballpark that I was ever introduced to. It was a nice, gleaming place to grow up at and use my training wheels as a baseball fan.

I enjoyed the extraordinary read over at Deadspin today about that fan; Randy Kobman.

I link it here because I think you’ll enjoy it too!
