Pete Rose to be inducted into Reds Hall of Fame
Rose, who played for the Reds from 1963 to ’78 and managed the team from 1984 to ’89, recorded an MLB-leading 4,256 hits over his 24-year playing career. He was named an All Star 17 times and a batting champion three times, while also winning two World Series with the Reds and an additional title with the Philadelphia Phillies.
In 1989, Rose received a lifetime MLB ban from commissioner Fay Vincent for betting on baseball. In December, current commissioner Rob Manfred decided not to lift Rose’s lifetime ban from the league.
Rose previously applied for reinstatement in 1992 and 1997, but Vincent and his successor Bud Selig, rejected his request each time.
Rose’s induction will take place during Cincinnati’s Hall of Fame weekend from June 24 to 26.
