Owner of Corked Rose Bat Discusses Find on TV

Most of us would rather not have X-rays.  They usually signify the possibility that something is amiss.

Pete Rose Mizuno batStockton, California collector Bill Schubert is just fine, but his X-rays definitely show something isn’t right.

Schubert is the guy who has a bat used by Pete Rose that’s filled with a long, skinny piece of cork, a strong bit of evidence that Charley Hustle was looking for an edge at the end of his career.

While cork is usually known to add a little power to a bat, Rose wasn’t a home run hitter…a fact that adds a little more mystery to the revelation.

The story of the Rose corked bat has been getting quite a bit of media attention including this TV report from CBS 13.
