May

First baseman, 1965-1971. Coach, 1988-1989. Inducted 2006.

A key part (“the big Bopper”) of the burgeoning Big Red Machine offense before being traded to Houston as part of the Joe Morgan trade.  A two-time All-Star during his years in Cincinnati, May shined during the Reds’ losing effort in the 1970 World Series.  His 8 RBIs were a record for a 5-game postseason series.
