Pete Rose Describes Joe DiMaggio Shower Scene

Posted: Updated:

Former Cincinnati Reds player Pete Rose spoke with Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia and told a wild story about a trip he took to Vietnam in 1967 with baseball legend Joe DiMaggio.

Rose explained that when they were in the middle of the jungle, DiMaggio said he needed to take a shower.

"And the only way you can take a shower, Mike, is they have these big bamboo bags, like, and somebody's got to get on a chair and pour the water and pull a rawhide thing and the water comes through and the guy takes a shower," Rose said. "So I saw everything that Marilyn Monroe saw."

Rose went on to say that the best way to describe the former Yankee is that "he was a penis with a man hanging from it."

The interview was transcribed by Sports Radio Interviews.
