Thirty years ago the Louisville Redbirds won the American Association title. It was the city's first minor league baseball championship in 22 years. Take a look back at the Redbirds' championship run.
Shawn Roof, the son of former Louisville Redbird great Gene Roof, continued to blister Louisville Bats' pitching - going 3-for-4 - to lead the Mud Hens to a 6-2 victory at Louisville Slugger Field. Louisville's loss, coupled with a victory by Columbus, trimmed the Bats' lead in the International League West to a half-game.
