Last season, the Reds finished with
baseball’s second-best record and won the Central Division for the

Before we set our sights on the
future of the program — one that looks bright despite the uncertainty
surrounded the university’s conference affiliation — we’ll look back at
the top 10 moments of the ’Cats’ 2012-13 season. Despite the frustrating
