[3]- In 1999, the Reds finished the regular season tied with the New York Mets for the Wild Card, but lost a one-game playoff.

The Cincinnati Reds are a Major League Baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are members of the Central Division of the National League. The franchise originated in 1882 as the Cincinnati Red Stockings, using a name that dates back to baseball's first openly all-professional team in 1869. They settled on their current name by 1890, though they used the name "Redlegs" for part of the 1950s to avoid any perceived association with Communism during the McCarthy era. The franchise was a charter member of the American Association, then one of the two major leagues, and then joined the National League in 1890.
