Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Pete Rose deserves to be reinstated in major league baseball and placed in the Hall of Fame. He was a man of limited ability who got it done with a big heart. Rose got a lot of base hits, and I admire him. If the (Sacramento) Steelhead owners want to pay him all that money, then they must feel he's worth it. I don't think they could have found a finer guy." - Dick Dietz in the Sonoma County Independent (Bill English, May 20-26, 1999)
