Cincinnati Reds outfielder Pete Rose, left, tumbles over after being forced out at second base in the seventh inning against the Cubs in Chicago on Sunday, May 1, 1972. Cubs shortstop Don Kessinger looks toward first base to see if his throw was quick enough to catch Reds outfielder Bobby Tolan who batted in to the play. Kessinger wasn't fast enough with the toss, but Chicago took the win 6-4, anyway.
