Pete Rose: "I Want to be a Manager"
"I want to be a manager, that's the only role," Rose told the crowd at Ohio Justice and Policy Center gala. "But I'm running out of time. I want to teach young players."
Yeah...you read that part about Rose addressing the Ohio Justice and Policy Center gala correctly.
"I don't go to many banquets where I sit with the judge that sent me to prison," the hit king and keynote speaker said, drawing laughter from the 300 people in attendance. "I'm not bitter at anybody. I made the mistake."
The former Cincinnati Reds player and manager was banned for life in 1989 for betting on baseball games...including Reds games. He holds baseball's record with 4256 hits.
