Play Hungry characters Ò 0 Summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Pete Rose Pete Rose ✓ 0 Summary He describes just what it was like to hit or try to hit a Bob Gibson fastball or a Gaylord Perry spitball what happened in that infamous collision at home plate during the 1970 All Star Game and what it felt like to topple Ty Cobb's hit record And he speaks to how he let down his fans his teammates and the memory of his dad when he gambled on baseball breaking the rules of a sport that he loved than anything else Told with candor and wry humor including tales he's never told before Rose's memoir is his final word on the glories and controversies of his life and ultimately a master class in how to succeed when the odds are stacked against y. Pete Rose was without uestion one of baseball s best known names during his uarter century in the Big Leagues as a player and manager His autobiography is very much focused on his career he begins with his childhood in Cincinnati and ends essentially with the end of his managerial career There are brief references to his personal life including his son s Major League debut but very few details about his marriages children or various legal entanglements As such the book will likely be most appreciated by those who remember Rose s days with the Big Red Machine and are interested in getting a sense of his thoughts on the game rather than those who might be interested in Rose as a human being While not a great book the occasional interesting insights are communicated in an easily readable fashionAs one would expect from an autobiography Rose paints himself in a flattering light He continually emphasizes his competitiveness work ethic and hustle Rose is proud of his career including the fact that he holds the record for most career hits Although he states at several points that his primary concern was helping his team win and emphasizes his willingness to switch positions as needed to put the best team on the field Rose s ego is undeniably large he writes at length about his desire to win personal awards such as Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player and hints at multiple points that he would like to be inducted into the Hall of FameRose is yet another baseball success story who had the advantage of an athletic father Big Pete was a semi professional football player into his early 40s and was an inspiration to his son The most touching and heartfelt section of the book is the preface in which Pete expresses gratitude for all his father gave him It is interesting to see how completely Pete dedicated himself to sports he had to repeat a year of high school because he failed to pass his classes and as a result played semi pro baseball his senior year having exhausted his high school eligibility Like many athletes he was physically a late bloomer getting much of his height and strength in his very late teensRose addresses his lifetime ban from baseball due to the bets he made on baseball during his career at both the start and end of the book On the one hand he apologizes for doing something that he acknowledges was against the rules of baseball On the other he makes clear that he feels no real moral ualms over his actions his claim is that he bet only on his own teams to win and that his financial interests were therefore aligned with the competitive interests of his team The same sorry not sorry attitude shows up elsewhere in his accounts When discussing his controversial collision with catcher Ray Fosse during the 1970 All Star Game Rose expresses remorse over the fact that Fosse was seriously injured but defends his actions as those of a competitor giving the fans the game they deserved
