They called them the “Big Red Machine” and Johnny Bench was the stalwart catcher of two World Series championships for the Cincinnati Reds in 1975 and 1976. Bench has gone on to be a symbol for the catcher position and one of the most famed baseball players of the 1970s. Neiman’s work on Bench here is just as his legacy is remembered; throwing down a base stealer, in perfect form.
