Pete Rose 'over' National Baseball Hall of Fame, shares Joe DiMaggio shower story on radio

Hit King and former Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose, who starred for the “Big Red Machine” teams of the 1970s, has made several television and radio appearances this week as he promotes a new book, including one in which he told Fox Business’ Stuart Varney that he doesn’t think he’ll get into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown while he’s alive – but he’s “over it.”

Rose, from his interview with Varney:

“I’m not angry. Why would I be angry? I’m the one who screwed up. … Because I’m from Cincinnati, like I said, I made their Hall of Fame. I got my number retired, OK, I get in the Hall of Fame and I got a statue and it’s more important to me because it’s my hometown. I was raised three miles from where I played in Cincinnati, Ohio. And, by the way, they played baseball today on the street called Pete Rose Way, but yet I’m not allowed to go in the clubhouse or in the batting cage.”
