    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."
    "Worst narrator ever"

    What did you like best about this story?

    The story's was excellent and appeared to be very well researched giving us a good insight into Pete Rose. Very compelling read.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was horrible. The story was great. The delivery was maddening, scores of mispronounced names. This is unacceptable. He couldn't even pronounce the name of the current commissioner of baseball correctly. Bud Sell'-ig. What a joke.

    This greatly detracted from the story. Where did they find this guy? The worst I have ever heard.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, due to the horrible delivery


    Any additional comments?

    Don't ever use this narrator again. He either doesn't care to take his job seriously or those who should have been checking on him should be fired. I wish I had read this great book instead of fuming over the presentation.
