The 1976 Cincinnati Reds season was a season in American baseball. The Reds entered the season as the reigning world champs. The Reds dominated the league all season, and won their second consecutive National League West title with a record of 102–60, best record in MLB and finished 10 games ahead of the runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers. They went on to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1976 National League Championship Series in three straight games, and then win their second consecutive World Series title in four straight games over the New York Yankees. They were the third and most recent National League team to achieve this distinction, and the first since the 1921–22 New York Giants. The Reds drew 2,629,708 fans to their home games at Riverfront Stadium, an all-time franchise attendance record. The Reds went 49–32 at home and 53–28 on the road in 1976. The 76 Reds are considered by many as one of the greatest baseball teams ever to play. The Reds scored 857 runs in 1976, easily the most in the league that season. Their +224 run differential was also the best in the league in 1976. As of 2017, the Reds are the only team in baseball history to sweep through an entire postseason since the addition of divisions. The Reds went 7–0 in postseason play in 1976.
