Who is Pete Rose? Is he Charlie Hustle, the all-American kid who never grew up, who pushed and stretched himself to get the most out of his limited talent, who would do anything in his power to win and to be a part of the game he loved? Or is he the bloated ex-athlete who broke baseballs one absolute taboo, and who was willing to drag down the whole structure of the sport to save himself?In January 2004, Pete Rose publicly admitted to betting on baseball and began his controversial campaign to get himself off the ineligible list and into the Baseball Hall of Fame. His recently published autobiography, the baseball legends selective telling of the truth, only furthers the myth and the mystery that surrounds him.With a new, updated introduction by the author, and packed with interviews with Roses family, his teammates, sportswriters, and police investigators,Hustleis the real, objective story of the life of Pete Rose.
