Rose hit Fosse because Fosse was blocking the plate. If your gonna tell
runners they can’t hit the catcher in an all star game you have to tell
catchers that they’re not allowed to block the plate. Its something every
one of us would have done if we were in Rose’s place and the circumstances
were the same. And the whole Fosse was never the same after the collision
argument is utter hogwash to anyone who bothers to do a little research.
While it is true that Fosse was hurt, he never went on the disabled list
and went on to play 42 games in the second half of the season. Of course
playing hurt there was a dip in his power, but the next season he went to
the All Star game again and won a Golden Glove. Fosse’s career went into a
tailspin in 1974 when, after being traded to the Oakland A’s, he got into
the middle of a clubhouse fight between Reggie Jackson and Billy North and
ended up with a broken neck. He missed the rest of that season, struggled
through the next three and was done with baseball by 1977. THAT was the
injury that he never recovered from.
Fosse was never the same after Rose tore up his shoulder, medical
technology at the time couldn’t properly diagnose his shoulder injuries,
nor was corrective surgery advanced enough. Ironically, his career might
have been compromised by Rose’s actions, but his life afterword, married to
the same woman for the last 44 years, and working as a Oakland Atheletic
radio and TV analyst for nearly thirty years, has been idyllic compared to
Rose and his train wreck of a life.
A hall of fame player! But, his head first sliding was a disaster for
baseball! One does not dive into a base or home! I saw Billy Martin almost
eat a baseball for attempting to “low bridge” the great catcher Jim Hegan
This same thing happened to me in my game. I hit the catcher because he was
block the plate. This is the way ball should be played
I have trouble sleeping at night, with rose not in the hall of fame
That was just aggressive play by Rose,I see no intent to hurt Fosse. The
base runner only has three feet to play with. I have run over a few
catchers in my day and I had nothing against them,they were blocking my
way. I put one guy into the backstop. He was not angry with me,we shook
hands and he said good play that’s part of baseball.
Remember when American men were tough?
Pete rose the baddest ass player of all time…
This is a great Charlie hustle.
Don’t block the plate if you don’t have the ball. – Pete Rose
This is real baseball.
I don’t really care about whether or not Rose should have hit Fosse, or
whether or not Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame. I do find the tools who
slobber all over Rose like a great baseball player actually contributes
anything to society because of that one skill to be amusing. He was a great
baseball player, but he is severely lacking as a person. Unless you
consider degenerate gamblers who put their addictions in front of everyone
and everything to be good people.
So yeah Major League Baseball has banned Pete Rose from baseball entirely,
for life. However, they still use Rose to highlight and promote their brand
as seen with this media. Is that not hypocritical? You’re not alright with
Rose having MLB employment or HOF-eligibility, but it’s alright to use his
image to promote the brand.
do not block plate
He tried to be flashy by diving head first but the ball was thrown near him
so he had to resort to a collision
The way it should be played
I hope they never let him in the hall, betting on baseball when he was
managing just tells you he cared more for money and gambling then
baseball,He lost his integrity for baseball somewhere down the line
.probably after thinking he was a lock for the hall of
fame……knucklehead..And thirty yrs later he finally admitted that he was
not only betting on sports but baseball.Him and Bonds should never get bin
I thought I heard Rose had dinner at Fosse’s house a few hours earlier that
The greatest players in the world only know one speed, FULL. They don’t
play to the level of their competition, EVER. There aren’t many of these
types but when you’ve been one of the blessed few to have seen one in your
life, you’ll NEVER forget them.
A guy I used to work with years ago at a record store (Remember those) in
the Tampa bay area told me a story of his asking Pete Rose for his
autograph. Billy, my friend, who was about 8, as a little kid walks up to
Rose during Spring training in Tampa and asks for his auto graph…and Rose
said this to an 8 year old I’d…”Fuck off kid.” Class act. Johnny Bench
was walking up behind Rose when this happened and apologized to Billy and
his family, gave him his autograph and ball cap..then walked over to Rose
and got in his face…players had to separate them. ..Rose was and is still
a cock face
Pete Rose broke the rules and should not be in the Hall of Fame. Simple as
that. He broke the laws of baseball and must pay the penalty. To make a
special rule for Pete Rose is to water down the Hall of Fame. Rules and
Laws must be followed.
Another step towards the Pussification of America ! If the catcher is
blocking the plate without the ball are you supposed to ask him to move ?
No, you do what Pete did !!
Common lore is that Pete and Ray were/are good buddies. They were not. In
fact, in the book “Talkin’ Baseball: An Oral History of Baseball in the
1970′s” by Phil Pepe (worth finding) Ray said that the first time he ever
met Pete was at dinner the night before the game. Good or bad, Pete tries
to spin it any way he can. Ray doesn’t think much of Rose and really
doesn’t like how he keeps changing his story but one thing is clear, they
never were friends.
I like Pete Rose. Yeah, he fucked up, gambled on baseball but STILL one of
big hearted players and inspirational. Does that make me a freak!?
For all the people here championing Rose’s actions, under the new rule,
Rose would have been perfectly legal and justified to truck Fosse. The
catcher cannot block the plate without the ball, period. The rule against
collisions does not kick in here, and Rose would have been safe.
And while I am glad he’s banned for life for his gambling, the real shame
is not that he will never be in the hall, it’s that one of the most amazing
careers ever had to end because of his terrible string of bad and illegal
Id like to join, hit me up, Xbox gamer Tucker6900
