For the vast majority of professional baseball players, how they will be remembered by fans has been determined by the last time they leave the playing field. However, for Peter Edward Rose, despite holding one of baseball's most hallowed record of most career hits, his legend changed greatly following his playing career and, to a certain extent, is still being written today.
Rose had a playing career that rivals just about any other professional baseball player in the last 100 years. He collected 4,256 hits in his 24 years of playing. He played in 6 World Series, while winning 3 of them. He played in 17 All-Star Games, and was selected while playing 5 different positions (also a record). Rose also served as one of the few player-managers in baseball history.
