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.
