Dayton Daily News - - SPORTS - As­so­ci­ated Press

CHICAGO — Pete Rose Jr., the son of the ca­reer hits leader who is banned from base­ball, will run a rookie league team of the Chicago White Sox.

Rose Jr. played 21 sea­sons of mi­nor league base­ball with sev­eral or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­clud­ing the White Sox. He ap­peared in 1,918 mi­nor league games and had a .271 bat­ting av­er­age. He was orig­i­nally drafted by the Bal­ti­more Ori­oles in the 12th round in 1988.

He will run the Bris­tol, Va., af­fil­i­ate in the Ap­palachian League.

In 1997, Rose Jr. got a small taste of the big leagues with the Cincin­nati Reds — his fa­ther’s pri­mary team when he played — when he ap­peared in 11 games, go­ing 2 for 14.

Chicago also said Joe McEwing will man­age the Triple-A team in Char­lotte, mov­ing up from Class A Win­ston-Salem, and for­mer Blue Jays star Devon White, with 346 ca­reer steals, will be a base-run­ning in­struc­tor in the mi­nors.
