LOL- I watched Pete do that maybe 1000 times, leading off games. First thing he would do is wipe out the back of the batters box, usually with his left foot, before taking a few practice swings with his corked bat.
I absolutely loved watching him play the game as well. When I was a child, Pete Rose was my very first hero. When I grew up, I learned that sports figure do not make very good heroes, and looked elsewhere for role models.
