From Peter Gammons’ latest:

Angels minor league outfielder Rich Giannotti, signed last June out of the University of Miami, spotted Pete Rose in an airport and decided to try to talk to him about switch-hitting. “He jumped up out of his seat and started demonstrating his swing and talking hitting,” Giannotti said. “He was incredible. Forty minutes later, I almost missed my flight. The funniest thing is that he thought my name was ‘Giamatti’ and kept telling me what a great guy Bart was and that he bears no grudges against him.”

That’s the first positive story I’ve read about Pete in 15 years.
