Gene Woodrey, 95, attended his first Cincinnati Reds baseball game Friday, Sept. 15. Accompanying him (from left) Chris Cooper, Jill Fallis, Jan Smith and Rick Ruttinger.

Not everyone is a baseball fan, but it would be difficult to find someone who does not know at least some of the words to “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

Gene Woodrey, a 95-year-old resident at Fairview Place in Carrollton, Ky., had grown up and lived in southern Ohio on a farm. Entertainment was often what could be found on the radio and Woodrey’s family tuned to 700 WLW to listen to the Cincinnati Reds games. In all of his years, Woolrey had never been taken out to the ballgame.
