‘An Evening with Pete Rose’ Live in The Villages

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Oct. 6, to spend an evening with legendary player and manager Pete Rose at the Savannah Center in The Villages at 7:30pm.

The Broadway-style theatrical event promises to transform the stage in capturing the golden years of America’s favorite pastime—baseball.

A game day atmosphere will transport the audience “into a field of memories” to relive a World Series game including the Star-Spangled Banner, introductions, and the game’s first pitch.

Mr. Rose, as a storyteller with hi-tech multimedia, will show the inside world of baseball and give a peek behind the curtain of America’s favorite pastime sport—“as no other person can.

Pete Rose signed a professional contract with the Cincinnati Reds straight out of high school. In 1963, during a spring training game against the Chicago White sox, the second baseman pulled a groin muscle giving Pete his chance to play. He eventually was voted Rookie-of-the-Year.

A switch-hitter, Pete Rose won three World Series rings, three batting titles, one Most Valuable Player Award, two Gold Gloves in 1969 and 1970, and was Rookie-of-the-Year in 1963. He made 17 All-Star appearances playing at an incredible total of five different positions: first, second and third baseman, left and right fielder. In his career, he recorded 4,256 career hits.

Purchasing a VIP package allows one to meet him at a 6 p.m. reception before the show begins.
