The Making of A Baseball PlayerBook - 2019
A legend on the field, Pete Rose shattered a number of hitting records thought to be unbreakable. During the 1970s he was the leader of the the Cincinnati Reds, but may never make the Hall of Fame because of his lifetime ban from the sport for sports betting. Here Rose tells us the story of how through hard work, hustle, and sheer will he became one of the unlikeliest stars of the game. By the time scouts were coming to his high school games, he wasn't even considered the best player on the team. His relentless hustle and headfirst style would help him overcome his natural shortcomings. This is Rose's love letter to the game. -- adapted from jacket
