Pete Rose Jr. will be the interim manager of the independent Florence (KY) Gamblers, er, Freedom of the once-proud Frontier League (it looks like the Chillicothe Paints are the last original team standing).
Oddly, he replaces Tom Browning who, if memory serves, spray-painted a big #14 on Riverfront Stadium grass during the park's final game ceremonies, which Rose Sr. was not allowed to partake in.
And Pete Rose Sr. will also be throwing out the first pitch in a July 21 game. This part kind of scares me though:
His visit is not only for the fans of the Freedom, but he is taking time out of his busy schedule to visit and mentor the Freedom team.
I wonder if he has any tips for the Reds-Cubs game that day. 'Nuff sed?
