Reds legend Pete Rose may have received a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball but that does not mean he is not still well-loved
in Cincinnati. Although his ban prohibits the Reds from displaying Rose's number alongside the numbers of other Reds greats,
the ball park still honors him by having seven baseball bats on each of Great American Ball Park's smokestacks which are in
honor of Rose's number 14.
