Pete Rose Riverfront Turf Plaque

On September 11, 1985, Pete Rose passed Ty Cobb's career hit record and
became "the hit king." The single was hit at 8:01 p.m., the game was at Riverfront Stadium.

#MRR2 $95.00 

 
  

THE MOMENT
A sellout crowd at Riverfront Stadium and a national television audience were watching to see if Rose could break Cobb's hit record -- something that seemed unbreakable. Rose didn't disappoint. In the first inning, he hit a line drive on a 2-1 slider from Show for hit No. 4,192.

Rose's hit set off a wild and emotional celebration.
The 47,237 fans stomped and roared their approval in what San Diego first baseman Steve Garvey calls the greatest ovation he has seen. Rose's teammates poured out of the Cincinnati dugout. After receiving congratulations from his teammates and a blazing red Corvette with license plate "PR 4192," a gift from Reds owner Marge Schott, Rose stood by himself at first base and broke down. Rose turned to first base coach Tommy Helms, threw an arm around one shoulder and put his head on the other, crying. Then Rose's son, Pete Rose Jr., emerged again from the dugout, ran to his dad and the two Roses embraced.
