CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A Cincinnati Reds legend and member of the Big Red Machine is auctioning off a pair of World Series Championship rings.
The ’75 Reds (108-54) bulldozed its way through the regular season en route to the World Series title.

In ’76, the Reds made it back-to-back World Series titles by sweeping the New York Yankees.
