The 61st manager in Cincinnati Reds history was officially introduced in a press conference on Tuesday.
That man is none other than Bryan Price, who previously served as the pitching coach for four seasons, and will be tasked to try and take the franchise to its fourth postseason in five years.
Seen in the video above is general manager Walt Jocketty, majority owner Bob Castellini, and Price, of course, saying a few words to the media about the momentous occasion.
By most accounts, fans were relatively impressed with Price's demeanor and message during the presser. A couple of the points he made in his speech had to do with emphasizing "unity" and "accountability," which is no doubt music to the ears of Reds fans.
And just like that, optimism has been renewed heading into the winter.
