Pete Rose, 75 -- April 14, 2016
Disgraced baseball star Pete Rose was born 75 years ago today, on 14-April-1941. "Charlie Hustle" was an apt description for him. I hated the Cincinnati Reds because they kept beating the Giants for a long period. I respected most of the players, but Pete Rose seemed to enjoy rubbing people the wrong way. He holds the all time record for hits, but he should never get into the Hall of Fame because he bet on games in which he played and managed.
Coincidentally, Pete Rose was born on the same day as beautiful British actress Julie Christie. They don't have much in common.
