The "Hit King" is on the Move

After a very successful seven-year run at Caesars Palace, Pete Rose is leaving Las Vegas.

Maybe.

It has been announced that Major League Baseball's all-time hits leader has left the Field of Dreams memorabilia store at the Forum Shops at Caesars for what he hopes will be "greener pastures".

"It was a mutual thing. He wanted to try something different. He's a deal maker," said Jim Nagourney, vice president of Stars Live, a division of Field of Dreams told the Las Vegas Review Journal.

So where's he heading?

Rumors are circulating that Rose, who turns 70 in April, might be heading down the strip, crossing Tropicana Boulevard and ending up at Luxor.  Former Chicago Bears great and pro football Hall of Famer Dick Butkus will take over the Hit King's seat at Caesars.

You can follow Rose's schedule over at his website.
