BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — All-time hits king Pete Rose is going to manage one game this month for the Bridgeport Bluefish in the independent Atlantic League.
The 73-year-old Rose will run the Connecticut team on June 16. The Bluefish host the Lancaster Barnstormers that night.
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 managing them.
Rose is able to take this one-game job because the Bluefish are not affiliated with any team in Major League Baseball.
