Pete Rose manages again for one day
By Jacob Young, Sports Anchor -
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Pete Rose's jersey was too big, and he was wearing dress pants as he exchanged lineup cards at home plate.
But the major league's career hits leader was back in his element Monday, managing a baseball team, if just for one day.
The 73-year-old Rose served as guest skipper of the Bridgeport Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League.
Rose was managing the Cincinnati Reds in 1989 when he agreed to a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball for betting on baseball. He later admitted he bet on Reds games while running the team.
Rose could take this one-game job because the Bluefish are not affiliated with any major league team.
Rose says he's relates to the Bluefish players, many of whom also are trying for a second chance in baseball.
