Reds, Pirates selected to play in Hall of Fame game
Pittsburgh will be playing in the exhibition game for the first time since an 11-8 win over the Chicago White Sox in 1980.
Cincinnati's last appearance was a 3-0 loss to Baltimore in 1967. The Reds' 1981 trip was canceled by a players' strike and their 1989 appearance was wiped out by airplane mechanical problems that kept the team from getting to Cooperstown.
