Pete Rose had an unforgettable baseball career. During his 24 seasons on the field, “Charlie Hustle” tallied 4,256 hits (a mark that has yet to be overtaken), played in 17 All-Star Games, won three World Series titles, nabbed a trio of batting championships, took home two Gold Gloves, and earned MVP honors once. Now, almost 30 years since his final game, Rose can add Hall Of Famer to his unmatched big league biography. That’s right, the legend—who was famously barred from enshrinement in Cooperstown as a result of betting on baseball games when he was a manager—will finally get the acknowledgement he so deserves, when he’s inducted into the Hall Of Fame…the National Bobblehead Hall Of Fame, that is.

On April 23, Rose will come to Milwaukee to have his bobbling likeness immortalized during the Milwaukee-based National Bobblehead Hall Of Fame’s first induction ceremony. The 2 p.m. ceremony will take place at the Pabst Theater, and will include a limited edition bobblehead, as well as a post-ceremony meet and greet/autograph option. Tickets run $40 to $55 and go on sale at noon on Friday, March 18. If you’ve been waiting decades to see Rose get some Hall Of Fame attention, this could be your only chance.
