Reds brunch features no-no duo

Posted: Updated:

The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum hosted a special brunch on Sunday featuring former Reds pitcher Jim Maloney and catcher Johnny Edwards.

On August 19, 1965, Maloney threw a no-hitter to Edwards in a 10-inning shutout against the Chicago Cubs.

Reds fans gathered for brunch in Great American Ballpark's Riverfront Club to listen as Maloney and Edwards took center stage to recount their most memorable moments in Cincinnati.

Maloney broke into the big leagues in 1960 and was part of the 1961 Reds National Championship run. Maloney went 134 games over 11 seasons in Cincinnati before his departure in 1970.

Edwards, a Columbus, Ohio native, was a Red for seven seasons from 1961-1967. During his rookie campaign, Edwards was the Reds leading hitter in the 1961 World Series. He was named to three consecutive All-Star games and awarded two Gold Gloves.

Fans had a chance to meet the duo and have some of their questions answered.

The brunch concluded in time for patrons to attend the Reds vs. Mariners game at the ball park.
