Pete Rose Out of Exile for a Night to Skipper a Baseball Team

Pete Rose Out of Exile for a Night to Skipper a Baseball Team

By    |   Monday, 16 June 2014 12:35 PM EDT

Pete Rose, arguably the best hitter in baseball history and now under a lifetime ban from the major league sport, is returning to manage a Connecticut baseball team, but just for one night.

The 73-year-old Rose, who has the most career hits in major league history, is scheduled to skipper the Bridgeport Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League on Monday.

Rose was managing the Cincinnati Reds in 1989 when he agreed to a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball. He later admitted that he bet on Reds games while running them.

Rose is able to take this one-game job because the Bluefish are not affiliated with any major league team. He has occasionally appeared at official events since his ban, with MLB's permission.

The Bluefish will host the Lancaster Barnstormers in Rose's game.

The team says the Atlantic League is all about giving people second chances, according to The Associated Press.
