CHARLIE HUSTLE The Rise and Fall of Pete Rose, and the Last Glory Days of Baseball

by | Read by Ellen Adair, Keith O'Brien

Biography & Memoir • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Ellen Adair handles this biography of Pete Rose beautifully, with clear enunciation and pronunciation, letting the rich and troubled life of baseball's all-time hits leader stand for what it is. Rose was a homegrown Cincinnati guy who went on to star for the Reds. But his off-field pursuits--gambling, an extramarital affair, and a lack of solid friendships--mar his legacy. Adair carries the narration of this fascinating, well-researched audiobook with a consistent tone and no imitations of quotes. She and the author both lay out Rose's life, one of the most polarizing in baseball history, and one that has kept the star out of the Hall of Fame.
