Pete Rose stars in Sketchers “hall” commercial

Pete Rose is starring in a new Sketchers commercial, with plenty of tongue in cheek references about “the hall”. From the moment the commercial begins, you know exactly what’s going on, but that doesn’t make it any less effective. Sure…the hall in Rose’s home. That’s exactly what we’re talking about here. Clever commercial, but it’s a little too on the nose for...

Pete Rose honored by team, gets number retired

It’s been more than 28 years since Pete Rose stepped into a batter’s box, but on Tuesday night, baseball’s hit king was part of a publicity stunt that would have, no doubt, made the late-Bill Veeck roll his eyes. Rose was invited to take the field for the Florence Freedom and serve as base coach and, you guessed it, even stride up to the plate at the game’s leadoff hitter...

He’s back, baby!  Well…for one day, at least. In a possible attempt to out publicity stunt fellow Atlantic League stalwarts Sugar Land Skeeters, the Bridgeport Bluefish announced Pete Rose, who is currently serving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball and who last managed in the bigs in 1989, will be in the dugout when the team takes on the Lancaster Barnstormers June 16...

Pete Rose: Using PEDs worse than gambling on baseball

Pete Rose, who remains banned from Major League Baseball for betting on games during his years as a player and as a manager, said Monday that his transgression isn’t quite as bad as using performance-enhancing drugs. “They’re both bad. I think in my case, I know I didn’t do anything to alter the statistics of baseball,” Rose said on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN 98.7 FM...
