Why would you find it pathetic that people want his autograph? I find that to be very odd.
First off everything he accomplished on the field was BEFORE he ran afoul with gambling on games when he was the Manager of the Team. He is still the All Time Hit Leader in Baseball. Multiple Batting Champ. He holds the major league records for games (3,562), at bats (14,053), hits (4,256), and singles (3,215). And there is plenty of Pete Rose Memorabilia all over the Hall of Fame. He just hasnt been voted in as Player. He wasnt juicing when he accomplished what he did and there a lot of people who are still huge fans.
Brent Mussberger is in Vegas working with Books. Doing some online Gigs. These guys are Big Draws. And a lot of poeple want to keep working. Regardless of age. And of ocurse they arent doing this for free.
I met Pete once when he was pounding balls at Deer Creek Golf Course in Deerfield Beach. We were on the Range next to each other. Seemed like a nice guy. He had a disease and made a mistake.
