“THE MOMENT
August 24, 1989, Thursday, 9 a.m. Giamatti, the commissioner of baseball, steps up to a microphone in New York City.

“One of the game’s greatest players has engaged in a variety of acts which have stained the game, and he must now live with the consequences of those acts,” he tells a packed room of reporters.

With that, Giamatti announces that Rose, baseball’s all-time hits leader and one of history’s greatest players, has been banned from baseball for life for gambling on baseball.”
