Pete Rose is Selling Shoes Now?

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Pete Rose doing commercials and if a quick search of YouTube and this latest spot from Skechers are any indication, we’ve been robbed of some gems.

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...

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...
