So...did the headline suck you in?
Yes, Pete Rose really is going to have his jersey retired. But not by the Cincinnati Reds, Philadelphia Phillies or any other Major League Baseball team....yet.
No, the 73-year old Rose will see his #14 Jersey retired by none other than the Florence Freedom on September 2nd.
Yes, the Florence Freedom of the Frontier League. (Single A--Independant)
Did we mention he'll be the 1st base coach for the game too?
Or that for $114 you can get an hour long meet and greet, 10 minutes of Pete speaking, a photo op and signed Freedom gear?
Yeah...we're guessing the "Hit King" is in need of a few bucks....
And hey, if you are really a Pete fan (and lots of Cincy folks are), the Freedom play just 20-minutes down south in Florence, Kentucky.
So why not, right?
