Did Pete Rose Use A Corked Bat?
Did Pete Rose use a corked bat? According to former Montreal Expos groundskeeper Joe Jammer the answer is yes.
Jammer served as a groundskeeper for 11 years.
“Pete Rose would have his bats corked in the visitors’ clubhouse at Olympic Stadium,” Jammer said in a recent interview.
“I found out he was corking bats. … Pete was too smart to deal with Expos equipment manager John Silverman (to cork his bats in the Expos’ clubhouse).
“So Bryan Greenberg, who worked in the visitors’ clubhouse, did it. He took me into a room, a door to the left, and underneath tarps there was this machine.”
