The 2000 Cincinnati Reds season was the 131st season for the franchise in Major League Baseball. It consisted of the Cincinnati Reds attempting to win the National League Central, although coming short in 2nd place. They had a record of 85 wins and 77 losses.[1] The Reds became only the second team in the modern era of baseball to not be shut out for an entire season, joining the 1932 New York Yankees. The 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers later accomplished this feat, but their season was shortened to 60 games due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Reds were managed by Jack McKeon. This was also future Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr's first season with the Reds, as he was traded to his long-time father's team from Seattle before the start of the season.
