Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Using a sharp knife, remove the tougher rind from the outside of the ham.
Place the ham, cut side down, in a roasting pan.
Score the outside of the ham with a diamond pattern about 1/4 inch deep.
Pour the juice from the pineapple rings into a medium bowl, and set rings aside.
Add the brown sugar and soda. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Pour the mixture over the ham.
Press a whole clove into the middle of each diamond.
Place the pineapple rings over the outside of the ham, securing it with toothpicks.
Place a cherry in the middle of each pineapple ring and secure it with a toothpick.
Bake uncovered for 4 hours, basting frequently until the internal temperature reaches 160.
Remove toothpicks before serving.
If the ham begins to begin browning too quickly, add a foil tent to keep it from drying out. Be sure to bast frequently to achieve a moist ham. I bast mine at least every 30 minutes for the juiciest meat.
