Baseball legend Pete Rose will be spotlighted during an event celebrating the 60th anniversary of Cassano’s Pizza.
An “Evening with Pete Rose LIVE” is set to take place at 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 24, at Fraze Pavilion, 695 Lincoln Park Boulevard, Kettering.
The disgraced and beloved former Cincinnati Reds player and manager is expected to tell stories during the event described as a “high-tech digital production” that “will make you feel like you’re at the ballpark.”
Tickets go on sale 9 a.m. Saturday, March 1 and range from $25 to $41.92.
They will be sold at the Fraze FanFare Store in Town & Country Shopping Center, 300 E. Stroop Road, online at etix.com or by phone at 1 (800) 514-3849.
Rose played in the major leagues from 1963 to 1986. He was a manager from 1984 to 1989.
On the heels of allegations that he bet on the Reds, the switch hitter agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989.
The Baseball Hall of Fame later voted to ban those on the permanent ineligibility list from induction.
The city of Kettering owns the Fraze Pavilion, a 4,300-seat outdoor amphitheater.
