Pete Rose Might Get Reinstated

MLB commissioner Bud Selig mulling pardon for hit king Pete Rose

COOPERSTOWN - Thanks to the behind-the-scenes lobbying from some of the most influential Hall of Famers, commissioner Bud Selig is said to be seriously considering lifting Pete Rose's lifetime suspension from baseball.

The tip-off that Selig may now be inclined to pardon baseball's all-time hit king was Hank Aaron's seemingly impromptu interview session with a small group of reporters in the lobby of the Otesaga Hotel on Saturday. In declaring for the first time that he would want an asterisk put on the achievements of any steroid cheats elected to the Hall of Fame, Aaron brought up Rose, who, in August of 1989, was given a lifetime ban for gambling on baseball, saying: "I would like to see Pete in. He belongs there."

There's more if you click the link.
I don't think Rose should be reinstated...I get into a lot of debates with people since he's from my area.

At first glance I thought this headline read "MLB Commissioner Bud Sellig mulling pardon for killing Pete Rose".

THEN I thought it read, " MLB Commissioner Bud Sellig mulling pardon for hitting Pete Rose".


Bah.

I remember seeing Pete Rose in person when the Reds played the Braves.. in Atlanta.

Lifetime ban = LIFETIME ban. When he dies... let's talk.
