Pete Rose: Full-Throttle Hustle, Gambling with Gangsters, and Winning at Any Cost BADLANDS: SPORTSLAND

    • Historia

Pete Rose was the biggest winner in baseball history. He played more games. He had more hits. The numbers prove he was, unequivocally, the best. But his desire to win became an all-consuming compulsion both on and off the baseball diamond. When he could no longer rack up wins on the field as a player, he sought out other ways to feel like a winner. This led to bets placed with gangsters, debts owed to vengeful bookies, and a web of secrets and lies that would ultimately prove his undoing.
