WATCH: Here’s a free hitting lesson from Pete Rose

Cincinnati Reds great Pete Rose has 4,256 major-league hits and at least that many opinions. 

When the Hit King gets to talking about baseball, there’s not much better. 

Take for example this segment from FOX Sports’ “MLB Whiparound” in which Rose talks about his approach at the plate, including the perfect plane for a solid swing. 

Bonus: Frank Thomas explains his approach and why strikeouts continue to rise in baseball today.
