Few baseball players were as exciting to watch as Pete Rose. Mr. Rose earned the sobriquet "Charlie Hustle" when he ran to first base. After a walk. In spring training. He was an early adopter of the headfirst slide and made its use mandatory if a player wanted to be perceived as going "all out."
Mr. Kennedy uses well-told anecdotes strategically, each helping us to better understand Mr. Rose — how he was so successful at the game despite having less natural ability than others (many even thought his brother Dave the better athlete), and why he was so beloved by the Cincinnati fans in a way that arguably even better players, such as Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan, were not.
