Pete Rose, Major League Baseball’s career hits leader, is teaming up with two local businesses to open a baseball academy and brew a beer named after the Cincinnati Reds great.
Derek Hurley, owner of The Bull Pen Scouting and Training Facility in Cypress, said the first Pete Rose Hit King Baseball Academy is planned for a 20-acre plot of land located at 4256 FM 2855, about 3 miles north of Hwy. 90 in Katy.
Hurley is developing the facility and will manage it with co-owners Ryan Baker and Johnny Johnson. Rose will be heavily involved with the project, he said.
