Pete Rose drops S-bomb during Phillies broadcast

An emotional Cincinnati Reds hall of famer Pete Rose adjusts his cap as he takes the microphone during a pregame ceremony for the unveiling of Pete Rose’s bronze statue being installed outside the stadium before the MLB National League game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Great American Ball Park in downtown Cincinnati on Saturday, June 17, 2017.Pete Rose

Pete Rose got a wee bit carried away while in the broadcast booth on Sunday.

Rose was invited to join the Philadelphia Phillies for their alumni weekend, which also included a reunion of the 1980 World Series team. The Hit King spent some time in the Phillies’ TV booth during Sunday’s game. That proved to be a bad idea.

Rose seemed to forget he was on air and subject to broadcast decency rules. He told a story that involved a “c–k high fastball” and the words “no s–t.”

The Phillies’ announcers did not seem to be too thrilled about Rose breaking FCC rules. Beware of the bad language in the video.

Rose also had a funny zinger about former Phillies first baseman John Kruk, who is now a broadcaster for the team.

That’s a reference to Kruk having one testicle removed due to testicular cancer.

Rose played five season for the Phillies from 1979-1983. In just his second season with the Phillies, the three-time World Series winner helped the team win its first championship in franchise history.
