Pete Rose


About the Author

Pete Rose grew up in Cincinnati and went on to star for the hometown Reds and later the Philadelphia Phillies. He holds the all-time baseball records for most hits in a career (4,256), most singles (3,215), most games played (3,562), most at-bats (14,053) and most outs. Rose made his major-league debut for the Reds in April 1963, a week before his twenty-second birthday, earning Rookie of the Year honors that season, and he was forty-five when he made his last major-league appearance in August 1986, also for the Reds. He appeared in seventeen different All-Star Games, and played on three teams that won the World Series. Rose won three batting titles and one Most Valuable Player Award. In August 1989, Rose received a lifetime ban from baseball for betting on the game, rendering him ineligible for the Hall of Fame.
