Dear Mr. Maguire: At your request, this letter confirms that if Pete Rose were to manage the independent league Bridgeport Bluefish, this office would not consider such activity to be a violation of the August 23, 1989 agreement between this office and Mr. Rose. Sincerely yours. Thomas J. Ostertag. (Mr. Ostertag is a Senior Vice President and the General Counsel for the league.)
