Scooter Gennett uses a Dale Earnhardt sticker on his bat knob
Babe Ruth, Bronko Nagurski and Dwyane Wade are just some of the most famous athletes to wear No. 3. But among NASCAR fans, there is only one: Dale Earnhardt. Count Reds infielder
The Reds gave Gennett No. 4 last season after
"It's my favorite number," Gennett told MLB.com's Mark Sheldon this spring. "I was a big Dale Earnhardt fan when I was younger, still am. I didn't really like No. 4. I had the four home runs [in one game] and all of that. I think three homers a game wouldn't be too bad."
Earnhardt's son and current NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. approves:
Raise hell, praise Dale 🤘🏼 https://t.co/Qj6UE4xqNo— Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr) April 10, 2018
