1984 HEADLINE: Pete Rose Is Coming Home – Traded Back To Cincinnati!!!
When this headline hit the papers 25+ years ago I am pretty certain that the feeling in the Cincinnati area was one of sheer joy!!!
A former baseball star was coming back to the city to once again play for and now manage the team that he helped become one of baseball’s greatest dynasties.
What a ride Pete took Reds’ fans on once he came back to the team. From making history by becoming the game’s all-time hits leader to being banished from the game for gambling.
No matter how you look at it and how you feel about Pete Rose today, you must admit that this was a historic day for the sport back in 1984!!!
