ESPN: Pete Rose to manage for 1 day

Pete Rose is back in professional baseball—for one game anyway. Rose, who still is serving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball, will return to the dugout to manage the independent league Bridgeport Bluefish for one day. The Bluefish, who play in the Atlantic League, announced Saturday that Rose will serve as their manager on June 16 against the Lancaster Barnstormers.

the line just changed

Bluefish general manager Ken Shepard referred to Rose’s one-game managerial return as “one of the biggest and [most] influential announcements in not only franchise history, but in professional baseball in the last 25 years.”
