Rose subject of documentary video short
ATLANTA -- Former Reds star and manager Pete Rose is the subject of an eight-minute video posted Tuesday on Grantland.com in conjunction with the announcement that the ESPN documentary series "30 for 30" is returning this September on the cable network.

Rose, suspended in 1989 after being accused of betting on baseball and barred from the Hall of Fame as a result, is most remembered for his record 4,256 hits. But in the video short directed by Eric Drath as part of a "Here Now" series, the 71-year-old Cincinnati native brings up another number.

"If you wanna put something on my tombstone that's very important to me, it's 1,972," Rose says. "That's how many winning games I played in, and that makes me the biggest winner in the history of sports."
