Charlie Hustle back at helm

– Pete Rose’s jersey was too big, and he was wearing dress pants as he exchanged lineup cards at home plate.

But he was back in his element Monday, managing a baseball team, if just for one day. The 73-year-old, whose 4,256 hits are the most in major league history, served as guest skipper for the Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League during their 2-0 win over the Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Barnstormers.

Rose was managing the Cincinnati Reds in 1989 when he agreed to a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball for betting on baseball. He later admitted he bet on Reds games while running the team.
