As long as Peter Rose Banned by the MLB, he has no place within a million miles of a major league ballpark. In 1989, he agreed to a lifetime ban for violating the cardinal rule of the game — betting on baseball while he was player-coach for the Cincinnati Reds.
Pete Rose confessed about his gambling in 2010, saying: “I disregarded the baseball game“, started crying. “When you do that, you disrespect your teammates, the game, and your family. …”But I’m a much better guy standing here tonight‘ said one distraught player that night.

The Phillies honoring all-time hit leader Pete Rose
The Philadelphia Phillies had planned to induct Pete Rose into the Hall of Fame in August 2017, but canceled his performance after a Cincinnati woman testified in federal court that she had had a sexual relationship with him when she was 14 or 15. The Phillies are now trying to honor Rose, baseball’s all-time hit leader, with 4,256. They invited him to a celebration of their 1980 World Series championship team at Citizens Bank Park on August 7th.
“In planning the 1980 reunion, we consulted with Pete’s teammates about his inclusion‘ the Phillies said in a statement last week. “Everyone wants Pete to be part of the celebrations as without him there would be no trophy in 1980. In addition, the club received permission from the Commissioner’s Office to invite Pete to be a member of the championship team.” The Phillies seem to be ignoring the following unfortunate fact: PETE ROSE IS BANNED FROM BASEBALL.
