VIDEO: Pete Rose Great Hitter; Poor Speller

This Pete Rose fan swung by The Art Of Music in Las Vegas and had the Cincinnati Reds Hall Of Famer sign a baseball for him. The young man asked Pete to sign the ball “Pay It Forward” as the fan is part of the random acts of kindness movement. Pete happily obliges but makes a small error in spelling the word “Forward” as you will see at the end of the clip. For the record the word “Forward” is listed as “basic” on this 6th grade spelling list. The autograph signing made a great memory for this fan, produced a nice conversation piece for his home or office, and provided the YouTube watching public with a humorous clip. Enjoy. Oh and for the record Pete, don’t feel bad, there’s a good chance I would have misspelled it too 🙂

Fan That Had Bryce Harper Sign His Mickey Mantle Ball Chucks Ball Into Woods After Being Denied By Pete Rose

Remember Brian, the fan who had Bryce Harper sign his grandfather’s Mickey Mantle Autographed Baseball? Well he’s back. This time documenting his trip to Cooperstown New York for the Major League Baseball 2011 Hall Of Fame Induction. He catches up with Pete Rose at a local restaurant and asks for his autograph on a previously unsigned baseball upon Rose’s departure. Rose does not sign, and Brian responds by throwing the ball into the woods over oncoming traffic.
