I was 12 years old, a lifelong Reds fan.

This was the day that Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti announced the lifetime ban of one Peter Edward Rose, breaking my heart.

I recall hearing the press conference on my cheap little alarm clock radio while sorting through baseball cards in my bed room.

I actually set my alarm clock (teenagers never wake up before noon in the summer) and got out of bed and watched it live.

I remember I was working a second job in a mail department and had the radio on in the van. A SAD DAY.
