There’s a wide array of records you can pull from the 19-year career of Cincinnati native and Reds living-legend Barry Larkin. But how about looking at his 1995 banner season. Arguably the best shortstop in MLB history, Barry led the Reds to a Central Division title and trip to the National League Championship on the back of 66 RBIs, 51 stolen bases and a standout .319 batting average.
The National League took notice of his littered stat sheet, and, against the competition of Greg Maddux, Mike Piazza, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds, he was anointed MVP.
Pay homage to the Cincinnati Kid and 1995 National League MVP with this super-soft throwback.
