| First Mentioned:
Pete Rose is a former Major League third basemen and manager.
Homer was reading a book about baseball to Lisa and one of the pages featured "Then, Pete Rose plowed into his friend Ray Fosse, dislocating Fosse's shoulder in a meaningless game. He had earned the nickname 'Charlie Hustle' by not letting personal feelings get between him and home plate."
Behind the Laughter
Pete Rose actually knocked over Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star Game. However, he was rewarded the nickname "Charlie Hustle" by former Yankee legend and Hall of Famer, Whitey Ford, rather than for that incident. Rose was banned from Major League Baseball at the conclusion of the 1989 season, due to gambling issues.
