Who says baseball history buffs are geeks? One former rapper lives in Cooperstown with his memorabilia and passion for old-time ball.
He's been on MTV as part of the rap group 3rd Bass. Wrote a book about the Royal Rooters and lives near Baseball's Hall of Fame. Life has been an interesting journey for Peter Nash…a/k/a Prime Minister Pete Nice.
Think rappers might spend their time chasing parties or doing something the rest of us wouldn't dare? When 3rd Bass was on the road, Nash always wanted to attend baseball games or buy baseball memorabilia.
“I can’t say my wife is always too thrilled about all of my baseball stuff,” Nash said. “She thinks I’m crazy. But I enjoy it.”
