No matter what kind of trouble Pete Rose has gotten into over the years, Cincinnati’s favorite son has always had the unwavering support of his home town and his home town fans. This City of Cincinnati Office of the Mayor Proclamation, written one week before Rose’s 36th birthday, is just one example of how Rose was received and treated by the people who loved him most and reads: “BE IT PROCLAIMED: WHEREAS, Pete Rose by his dedication and hustle brings in addition fans to both home and away games; and WHEREAS, Pete Rose stands out in modern baseball history as one of the few that have maintained a .300 plus batting average over fourteen seasons and rapped out 2,762 hits during the same period; and WHEREAS, Pete Rose has brought honor to Cincinnati and his ball club as a home grown sports superstar; and WHEREAS, His presence and activities in Cincinnati have done much for the young people, business and sports in Cincinnati; and WHEREAS, We wish him at least another fourteen years of success in our city: NOW, THEREFORE, I JAMES T. LUKEN, Mayor of the City of Cincinnati, do hereby proclaim Wednesday, April 6th, 1977, PETE ROSE DAY in Cincinnati. The 8.5” x 13.5” document is of course signed by Mayor Luken in fine-line black marker and carries the Mayor’s official seal. Rose almost made it another 14 years with the team, playing for the Reds until 1986 (the last two years as player/mgr.) and continued as manager until 1989.
