  1. IF you’re rating this product based on the individual, in comparing him to one of MLB’s quiet heroes, you’ll do a disservice. Truthfully, Pete Rose is OUT of baseball because of…Pete Rose. Still, it’s nice to pay some homage to a ballplayer who gave 110% every game, and the man does have the most games played, most at-bats, and most base hits (4,256) in MLB History. Doesn’t that account for something positive, regardless of what a few bitter old ballplayers think? Good product, and Mr. Rose needs to get HIS act together, too.
