Saluting Big Klu

  • Hour 1 of the program
  • Hour 2 of the program
  • Pete Rose was asked what his theory of hitting - if he had Ted Kluszewski's job as batting instructor for the Reds - what his approach to hitting would he teach to a young Pete Rose.

Sunday, October 21, 2012: 8 PM

The World Series is near, so Lee Hay has assembled a 2-hour baseball extravaganza saluting one of the greatest Reds ever, first baseman Ted Kluszewski. He was a bigger than life athlete and during this program, listeners will hear from his wife, Eleanor; clubhouse legend Bernie Stowe and his wife, Priscilla; Ken Griffey; Steve Wolter from Sports Investments; Big Klu in the Reds Hall of Fame and more. Also learn about this year’s Reds Fest, and the Baseball on the West Side exhibition at the Price Hill Historical Society.

There are also two web exclusives on www.wvxu.org: audio of Pete Rose’s answer to the question if he was Ted Kluszewski, what advice would he have on hitting; and video from a 1956 episode of What’s My Line featuring the Reds with Big Klu as spokesman.
