Major League Baseball’s all-time hit leader may never see the hallowed halls of Cooperstown and be enshrined in the MLB Hall of Fame, but that hasn’t stopped a number of fans who have lent their support to Pete Rose.

Rose is suspended for life from baseball for betting on games when he was the manager of the Cincinnati Reds and despite denying he ever gambled on baseball for nearly two decades, issued a mea culpa in 2007 that he ‘bet on the Reds every night.’

To that effect a very funny T-shirt was spotted by former big leaguer Gabe Kapler who tweeted this picture of one fan’s way of showing support for “Charlie Hustle” who retired with 4,256 career hits.

We can argue all day and night about whether or not Rose deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but one thing we can all agree on is that this T-shirt is absolutely hilarious.

No word on how to purchase this, but based on the location of Kepler’s tweet in Cincinnati, I’m guessing the shirt is only for sale from a vendor at or near the Great American Ballpark.
