Pete Rose, born in 1941, is a world-renowned baseball player, acknowledged for his playing as much as for the controversy he ignited. A Cincinnati native, Rose began playing for the Reds in 1963. Nicknamed "Charlie Hustle," Rose was an enthusiastic and energetic player with a well-noted work ethic. Rose also managed the Reds from 1984 to 1989, having retired as an active player in 1986.

In 1989, amid growing suspicions, Rose finally admitted to betting on his own games. He agreed to permanent ineligibility from baseball much to the massive disappointment of his many fans, especially because as manager, he had been in a position to affect the outcome of games he had bet on. Serving prison time and facing many fines for his crimes, Rose, now in his 70's, has tried to make amends in the hopes of someday re-gaining eligibility to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame - an honor he otherwise richly deserves. The general consensus, sadly, is that he'll never make it.

During his career, Rose was the leader in hits (4,256), games played (3,562), at-bats (10,328), and outs (10,328). He also helped win three World Series, and was awarded the Most Valuable Player award in 1973, two Gold Gloves, and the Rookie of the Year award in 1963. Furthermore, Rose made 17 All-Star appearances serving in five different positions - a feat unequaled by any other ball player.
