By now, you probably have seen Pete Rose’s new commercial for Skechers. However, Charlie Hustle is no stranger to the advertising game.

Pete Rose to return to Major League Baseball?

It’s now been 25 years since former Cincinnati Reds switch hitter Pete Rose was banned from Major League Baseball.

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.

Bud Selig: I have five months to think about Pete Rose

CINCINNATI — Retiring Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig knew it was coming, just as any hitter facing the Cincinnati Reds knows a fastball is coming from Aroldis Chapman. Selig was in Great American Ball Park Friday night and held a media conference to field questions. As he stood at the podium, he smiled and looked out toward the nearly filled room and said, “I can probably guess...

Pete Rose To Rob Manfred: “Give Me A Second Chance”

MLB’s all-time hit king Pete Rose said he wants incoming commissioner Rob Manfred to give him a second chance and consider reversing his lifetime ban. On August 24, 1989, Rose was banned for life for betting on games. He has since apologized for his actions, but hasn’t been reinstated since being banned by commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti.
