    I know Ive read or saw a video saying how the Club house manager guy refuses to give the number out. Also apparently no one has ever asked for it.

    Nope. I'd be shocked to see someone in the #11.

    They are waiting for him to come back and manage.

    They are probably waiting for him to get in to the Hall of Fame before they retire it.

    I don't ever foresee anyone getting to wear that number again though.

    Definitely hope #11 is retired. Barry is my all time favorite baseball player by a landslide.

    They can't hold an official ceremony for Rose I don't think, but that number is unofficially retired.

    11 is retired in spirit. I don't think you'll see anyone wearing that on the Reds ever again. Just a matter of time before it's officially retired.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    It would only make sense for the Reds to retire #11.

    He was great in so many ways.

    #11 will most definitely be retired.

    I have worn the number 11 sense the late 80's on every team I played on because of Berry Larkin it should have already been done
