It doesn’t really matter if Pete Rose is in the game of baseball or on the outside looking in, he is a baseball lifer. Nobody played the game with the vigor and reckless abandon like Rose did, hence his nickname Charlie Hustle. In 1981, while with the Philadelphia Phillies, the Hit King clubbed his 3,601st Major League hit. Offered is the actual ball that Rose hit off Giants pitcher Allen Ripley. The ONL (Feeney) ball emits a perfect Rose signature on a side panel. Neatly written is the following: “Wed. May 13, 1981 Hit # 3,601 against S.F. Giants Pitcher Allen Ripley 7th Inning Single.” That writing did not come in Rose’s own handwriting, but that is not uncommon with milestone balls. Once Rose had the hit, it was taken out of play and we presume that the writing was scribed by a bat boy, coach or equipment manager. Rose personally gave this ball to Bruce Wendell, a long-time confidant. Wendell was a Senior Vice President of Promotions for Capitol Records. The winner will also receive a photo of Rose and Wendell during spring training. In all actuality, this ball belongs in Cooperstown but we are pleased to offer it to a baseball or Rose fanatic.
