article imageA decision on Pete Rose's reinstatement to baseball has been made

By Al Boe     Dec 14, 2015 in Sports
Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has decided not to reinstate Pete Rose into the game of baseball, according to reports.
Rose has been trying to get his lifetime ban — for gambling on baseball while he was managing the Cincinnati Reds — overturned, appealing to former commissioner Bud Selig several times, and recently sitting down with new commissioner Manfred to make his case.
The decision, which has not yet been announced by the commissioner's office, is confirmed by multiple sources to the New York Times, who broke the story. The decision reportedly was planned to be revealed to Rose later this week, but after being leaked, he was informed on Monday morning.
Rose is a legend in the game, having more hits than anyone in Major League Baseball history across his 24-year Major League career. A reinstatement by the league would have allowed Rose a chance for entry into the Hall of Fame, but instead he will continue to be banned from entry.
Over the course of the last year, Rose has once again become a more public figure around the league, appearing on game broadcasts on FOX, and being honored on field at the 2015 MLB All Star Game in Cincinnati, the city where he became a legend.
Rose has been banned from Major League Baseball since 1989, when an investigation revealed he had bet on several MLB games, including some that his own team competed in.
