CINCINNATI (AP) -Reds broadcaster Marty Brennaman apologized on the air for comparing Cincinnati's upcoming road trip to the Bataan Death March.
Brennaman told radio listeners during the Reds' game Tuesday night against the Angels that he was wrong to make the comparison in an earlier broadcast, ``and I profusely apologize.''
Thousands of captured U.S. and Filipino soldiers were forced to walk 70 miles to a concentration camp during World War II, many dying along the way. A radio listener in New Mexico heard Brennaman's remark about Bataan and sent the Reds an e-mail objecting to the comparison.
The Reds' next road trip takes them to Oakland, Seattle and Philadelphia. Cincinnati has the worst record in the National League.
