CHICAGO —

Pete Rose Jr., the son of the career hits leader who is banned from baseball, will run a rookie league team of the Chicago White Sox.

Rose Jr. played 21 seasons of minor league baseball with several organizations, including the White Sox. He appeared in 1,918 minor league games and had a .271 batting average. He was originally drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 12th round in 1988.

He will run the Bristol, Va., affiliate in the Appalachian League.

In 1997, Rose Jr. got a small taste of the big leagues with the Cincinnati Reds - his father's primary team when he played - when he appeared in 11 games, going 2 for 14.

Chicago also said Joe McEwing will manage the Triple-A team in Charlotte, moving up from Class A Winston-Salem, and former Blue Jays star Devon White, with 346 career steals, will be a base-running instructor in the minors.
