The Cincinnati Reds' 1982 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Reds finishing in sixth place in the National League West, with a record of 61–101, 28 games behind the Atlanta Braves. The Reds played their home games at Riverfront Stadium. John McNamara managed the club to a 34–58 start before being replaced in late July by Russ Nixon, who compiled a 27–43 record the rest of the year. 1982 was the first time that the Reds finished in last place since 1937, as well as their first losing season since 1971, the team's first full season at Riverfront. It was also the first and as of 2021, only 100-loss season in franchise history.
