Tickets will be available starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, for the Miami community and Friday, Sept. 18, for the general public, if tickets remain.

Rose holds Major League Baseball records for the most hits (4,256), games played (3,562) and at-bats (14,053). He earned three World Series rings, three batting titles and 17 All-Star appearances.

However, he agreed to permanent ineligibility from baseball in 1989 after accusations surfaced alleging that he gambled on baseball games during his time as a manager.

Paul Daugherty has spent the last 27 years as a sports writer, with the last 21 as a columnist at The Cincinnati Enquirer. Throughout his career, he has covered several Olympic games, Super Bowls, World Series and U.S. Open and Masters golf tournaments. His writing has earned him first place awards from Associated Press Sports Editors.
