Pete Rose I’m Not Best Player Missing From HOF … Here’s Who Is
Pete Rose is NOT the best player missing from baseball’s Hall of Fame … so says The Hit King himself, who tells TMZ Sports a Chicago White Sox legend is!!
“Joe Jackson,” Rose says.
Pete made the revelation to us out in NYC on Tuesday morning — surprisingly not saying his own name. So, we had to ask … why?
“Well,” Rose responded … “Do you know who he is?!”
For those unfamiliar, Shoeless was a stud outfielder back in the early 1900s … batting a career .356 while helping the Sox win the 1917 World Series.
Of course, Jackson famously was involved in the Black Sox Scandal — where Chicago players allegedly accepted money to throw the 1919 World Series — and he’s been banned from the Hall ever since.
Rose clearly thinks that’s a mistake … saying Jackson is the most talented player not in the HOF … which is shocking, considering Pete’s a 17-time All-Star with 4,256 career hits!!!
