-The 1970 All-Star Game, which also took place in Cincinnati, and showcased the competitiveness of Pete Rose

-Memories of watching the Midsummer Classic as a youngster, covering it as a reporter, and broadcasting it from the TV booth last year

-His thoughts on the “Franchise Four” voting, which is set to be revealed at Great American Ballpark in a pregame ceremony
