Autograph seeker meets Pete Rose … it does not go well

When a 12-year-old boy shows compassion and maturity and a grown adult acts like a petulant child, we can only be talking about Major League Baseball. In the video below, Pete Rose has just finished a meal, and an autograph seeker approaches him at his car to try and get a ball signed. Here’s what happens.

YouTube description:

After my success of trying and getting Bryce Harper to sign my (previously signed) Mickey Mantle baseball, I traveled to Cooperstown, NY to try and meet the elite ball players, The Hall of Famers. In travels, I stopped at a local restaurant and was actually seated close to Pete Rose’s table. I was definately surprised to see that THE PETE ROSE was in Cooperstown (Since he is not a Hall of Famer). I politely approached him after he was finished eating and as he exited the restaurant. Here is my documentation of the event.

As Busted Coverage points out, Pete never was one to sign stuff for free. But I gotta say, the man has the right to politely say no. Suck it up, dude.

    So the ball that he threw into the woods had Bryce Harper’s autograph on it?

    Regardless, what a bitch.

    used to serve a cincy area restaurant frequented by charlie hustle. being a life long reds fan, i was overjoyed the first time he came into the restaurant. after i brought his half pound of sliced fruit, and five scrambled egg whites for breakfast, he looked at me thanklessly and said: Where’s the fucking ketchup?

    shaped my ideas about the man behind the myth. iconic? yes. dill hole? absolutely. do the math.
