In what would be a truly shocking development, baseball commissioner Bud Selig is seriously considering lifting the lifetime ban from baseball for gambling placed on defamed hit king Pete Rose 20 years ago next month.
Influential Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan and Frank Robinson have all lobbied on the Cincinnati Red legend’s behalf, the New York Daily News reported.
Rose would need to apologize publicly for his mistakes, and would not be allowed to manage. He would, however, be eligible for the elusive honor of the Hall of Fame.
Rose holds the all-time record for hits, amassing an unreal 4,256 in his 24-year career.
