    Pete Rose played baseball with a singular and headfirst abandon that endeared him to fans and peers, even as it riled others--a figure at once magnetic, beloved and polarizing. Rose has more base hits than anyone in history, yet he is not in the Hall of Fame. Twenty-five years ago he was banished from baseball for gambling, then ruled ineligible for Cooperstown; today, the question "Does Pete Rose belong in the Hall of Fame?" has evolved into perhaps the most provocative in sports, a layered, slippery and ever-relevant moral conundrum.

    David says: "Good book, not so good production."
    "Ben Bartolone--narrator--is terrible"

    What did you like best about Pete Rose? What did you like least?

    Bartolone ruined this book for me. Consistently mispronounces names. Leo Durocher (Da-row-sher, not Due-row-shay), Maury Wills (wills, not will-is).
