BeschreibungPete Rose is baseball's "Hit King," the Major Leagues' all-time leader in career hits. But some fans consider his off-the-field actions a black mark on the sport. Major League Baseball's investigations into Rose's gambling led to his lifetime banishment from the game--which, in turn, has barred him from otherwise--certain induction into the Hall of Fame. Rose brought to the sport an unparalleled drive to succeed. Now, people from every part of society debate the nature of his legacy. Baseball author David Jordan presents an even-handed look at Rose's life, career, and post-baseball life, and lets the reader decide for him- or herself.
Pressestimmen?[T]he perfect length for those "read a biography of these many pages" projects that teachers perennially assign. It would also serve any researcher well as a starting point for a project....Librarians should consider purchasing titles in this series to beef up their biography collections in anticipation of those annual assignments.?-VOYA
