1993 Studio Barry Larkin

Hobby is hunting: Larkin has a reputation as one of the most avid hunters in sports.

Favorite sports announcer is Al Michaels: Larkin is from Cincinnati; Michaels was originally a Reds announcer.

Favorite players as a kid were Dave Concepcion and Ozzie Smith: Larkin ended up playing with his idol, Concepcion, with the Reds.

Most prized possessions are his ’90 World Series ring and his ’88 Olympic medal: It must be a pretty select group that has won both a World Series and an Olympics, I know Tino Martinez was on that team as well.

Might have been a financial advisor if he hadn’t been an athlete: Larkin has now done just that, starting a firm called Dugout Ventures with Torii Hunter, David Ortiz, Nolan Ryan and Vernon Wells.

Where he is now: In addition to Dugout Ventures Larkin also does work for the Reds.
