PETE ROSE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Group Hoping to Help Get Pete Rose Reinstated Told to Stop

Without getting into the “why” and the “how”…we all know that Pete Rose is serving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball, right? For nearly three years, Don Knepper and his group of Rose supporters have made it their mission to try and get baseball’s hit king reinstated through their grassroots internet venture Lift the Ban. Now, they weren’t doing this through...

Pete Rose thinks he'll get in Hall of Fame, maybe when he's dead

Pete Rose believes he will eventually be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, even if it’s posthumously. Rose did an interview with Lee Cowan of “CBS This Morning” that will air on Sunday morning and said he believes he will get in at some point. “Yes, sure,” Rose said when questioned by Cowan about...Read More

Pete Rose stars in Sketchers “hall” commercial

Pete Rose is starring in a new Sketchers commercial, with plenty of tongue in cheek references about “the hall”. From the moment the commercial begins, you know exactly what’s going on, but that doesn’t make it any less effective. Sure…the hall in Rose’s home. That’s exactly what we’re talking about here. Clever commercial, but it’s a little too on the nose for...

Pete Rose honored by team, gets number retired

It’s been more than 28 years since Pete Rose stepped into a batter’s box, but on Tuesday night, baseball’s hit king was part of a publicity stunt that would have, no doubt, made the late-Bill Veeck roll his eyes. Rose was invited to take the field for the Florence Freedom and serve as base coach and, you guessed it, even stride up to the plate at the game’s leadoff hitter...

Bud Selig: I have five months to think about Pete Rose

CINCINNATI — Retiring Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig knew it was coming, just as any hitter facing the Cincinnati Reds knows a fastball is coming from Aroldis Chapman. Selig was in Great American Ball Park Friday night and held a media conference to field questions. As he stood at the podium, he smiled and looked out toward the nearly filled room and said, “I can probably guess...

Saberhagen remains adamant that Rose should be in Hall of Fame

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Bret Saberhagen hasn't changed his mind. It's a travesty, the former Royals great believes, that baseball's all-time hits leader, Pete Rose, isn't in the Hall of Fame. In 2006, when Saberhagen was entering his first year of Hall of Fame eligibility, he felt so strongly about the issue that he told me that if somehow he would be voted into the Hall, he would decline...

Pete Rose manages minor league team

It’s been 25 years since Pete Rose managed a big league game.  Monday…all that changed.  Kinda. Sure, it isn’t exactly the Major Leagues, but thanks to the independent league Bridgeport Bluefish, the Hit King was back in baseball.  Even if just for a night. “I’m not doing this to impress anybody to try to be reinstated.  I don’t know that this would make Bud Selig...

Pete Rose to manage game for Bridgeport Bluefish

He’s back, baby!  Well…for one day, at least. In a possible attempt to out publicity stunt fellow Atlantic League stalwarts Sugar Land Skeeters, the Bridgeport Bluefish announced Pete Rose, who is currently serving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball and who last managed in the bigs in 1989, will be in the dugout when the team takes on the Lancaster Barnstormers June 16...

Pete Rose: Using PEDs worse than gambling on baseball

Pete Rose, who remains banned from Major League Baseball for betting on games during his years as a player and as a manager, said Monday that his transgression isn’t quite as bad as using performance-enhancing drugs. “They’re both bad. I think in my case, I know I didn’t do anything to alter the statistics of baseball,” Rose said on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN 98.7 FM...
