It will be narrated by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and long-time Parker fan Chuck D.
Parker graduated from Courter Tech High School in 1970 and still lives in Cincinnati. He has worked often with young players at the Reds Urban Youth Academy in Roselawn.
More from a press release from MLB Network:
MLB Network Presents: The Cobra at Twilight features new interviews with Parker and his wife Kellye, several of Parker’s former teammates and managers, including Hall of Famers Dennis Eckersley, Tony La Russa and Barry Larkin, plus Eric Davis, Phil Garner, Pete Rose, Gary Sheffield and Kent Tekulve, as well as former Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famers Tony Dungy and “Mean” Joe Greene. Each speaks to Parker’s on-field dominance and brash, outsized personality that had teammates calling him “the Muhammad Ali of baseball,” and how Parker’s landmark contract in 1979 that averaged $1 million per season earned him intense scrutiny from both media and fans.
Parker is among nine former Major League Baseball players and one executive on the 10-name Modern Baseball Era ballot – to be reviewed and voted on Dec. 8 – for 2020, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum announced earlier this month.
Parker hit .281 with 107 home runs and 432 RBIs in four seasons for the Reds from 1984 through 1987. He was a two-time All-Star for the Reds and finished second in National League MVP voting in 1985 and fifth in 1986.
Parker hit .290 with 339 home runs and 526 doubles in 19 MLB seasons. He won the National League MVP award for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1978.
Parker revealed in 2013 that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and his Cobra Classic Golf Outing raises funds for Parkinson’s research. He was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2014.
