No not Derrick Rose, but Pete Rose. Major League Baseball’s all-time hits leader may still be banned from their diamonds, but Rose is free to roam on anyone else’s. Rose managed the Independent Atlantic League’s Bridgeport Bluefish for one day. Rose was successful in his return since being banned in 1989 for illegal gambling, managing the Bluefish to a 2-0 win.
