Cincinnati Reds third baseman Pete Rose, left, grimaced while watching the races at Keeneland on October 13, 1976. Rose, relaxing before the World Series, attended the races with a high school pal, Joe Kaiser with binoculars, and shared a box with sportscaster Tom Hammond, rear, and University of Kentucky basketball player Rick Robey. The Reds had won the National League Playoff Series against Philadelphia the day before. The defending champion Reds would face the New York Yankees in the World Series, sweeping the Series to become the only team to sweep an entire multi-tier postseason. Photo by David Perry | Staff
