Born Peter Edward Rose but known to all as Pete Rose is back in the scene. He has just taken a job with Fox Sports as a baseball analyst. A polarizing figure in the MLB due to his life time ban for gambling, he also holds several MLB records which makes him a great in the sport. His name will always be in the history books, yet he is currently on the “permanently ineligible” list from induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Sportsbooks and agents alike have heard the story, but Booking Per Head takes a quick glimpse into a baseball great, that fell from grace.
Illustrious Career and Downfall
Born April 14, 1941 and known as “Charlie Hustle“, Pete Rose signed a professional contract with the Cincinnati Reds as soon as he was out of high school. He started creating waves rights away in his rookie year and Yankees legend Whitey Ford gave him his famous nickname during preseason. His illustrious career saw him play for the Reds from 1963–1978, then with the Philadelphia Phillies from 1979–1983 and finally the 1984 season with the now disappeared Montreal Expos. He did play his last seasons with the Reds retiring after the 1986 season. At the time Rose retired he held many MLB records and to this date he still remains the MLB’s leader in hits (4,256), games played (3,562), at-bats (14,053), singles (3,215), and outs (10,328). He won three World Series rings, three batting titles, one Most Valuable Player Award, two Gold Gloves and the Rookie of the Year Award. In 1989 Rose was questioned by baseball commissioner regarding his involvement in betting on baseball. He denied all charges before Rolling Stones broke the story to the public. Lawyer John M. Dowd was hired to investigate and in the now famous Dowd Report he listed all of Rose’s gambling activities. After a long judicial process, Rose accepted to be placed on the ineligible list in return of the League not making no formal findings in regards to the gambling allegations. An amazing story which is end is yet to be written, we wish Pete the best luck in his new gig.
