Re: Pete Rose's quote
I know a lot of people are saddened by Pete's actions over the past 16 years. I've heard the word "dignified" tossed around a lot as in Pete should be more dignified. When the hell was Pete ever dignified? I don't mean this as a knock on him but he sure didn't play the game with dignity. He scrapped and dove and did whatever he could to be the best ballplayer he could be. It was not dignified but it was effective. He certainly wasn't dignified in hs personal life even back in the 70s. How can anyone expect him to act any different now? I think it is sad he isn't enshrined in the Baseball HOF but for those of you who believe he should be in because of his on the field accomplishments and in spite of what he did off the field, does it make him any less of a player in your minds and hearts because he doesn't have a plaque there?
