CHICAGO, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Former Chicago White Sox minor league player Pete Rose Jr. will manage the club's rookie league farm team, officials said Monday.

Rose, who played 21 years in the minors, is the son of all-time major league hits leader Pete Rose, who was banned from baseball for gambling activities.

The White Sox said Rose Jr., 41, will take over as manager of their Bristol, Va., team in the Appalachian League -- the first managerial assignment for Rose from a major league organization.

He played in the White Sox system for Class A Sarasota in 1991 and at five different levels from 1994-96, the Chicago Tribune reported.
