Featuring Live Interviews and Original Film Highlights

“Charlie Hustle”

“Best syndicated sports series on television.” — LA Times

Pete Rose, baseball’s “Charlie Hustle” has been smacking base hits, sliding head first, and winning for over three decades.

His individual accomplishments are highlighted by more that 4000 total hits, and his memorable 44-game hitting streak, a National League record and the second longest ever to Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game streak.

Rose puts everything he’s got — 110% — into every game. Rose’s enthusiasm and determination were contagious as he sparkled Cincinnati’s “Big Red Machine” to two World Championships, and the Philadelphia Phillies to another.

Pete has since rejoined his original team, the Reds, as player/manager, a fitting end to a career that includes every individual and team success one can imagine.

Pete Rose, a real competitor, and a Greatest Sports Legend.
