Pete Rose Deserves To Be In The Hall Of Fame

Pete Rose was one of the greatest players to ever play the game. He is 70 years old and deserves to have the opportunity for induction into the MLB Hall Of Fame while he is still living. It would be tragic for this man not to receive what he deserves for exceptional play matched and unmatched by very few that are in the Hall Of Fame.

      I will never set foot inside the MLB Hall of Fame until Pete Rose is enshrined. He is the greatest, all-around player to ever wear a baseball uniform. His conspicuous absence from Cooperstown casts a shadow on everyone else's honor. This is serious, Mr. Commissioner. This isn't even close. Without Pete Rose enshrined, the Hall has no integrity. I wasn't a Reds fan, but, like baseball lovers worldwide, it was a thrill to watch Pete Rose, the greatest player who ever played the game.

      After seeing baseball tarnished by players using steroids for years now, it is a great travesty that Pete Rose is still banned from baseball for gambling when you have players getting suspensions for cheating the game by using HGH and PEDs.Pete Rose was never a cheater, his only downfall was gambling.

      I enjoyed watching Pete Play he gave 110 percent. He played to win he earned his money at least he was not buying drugs like alot of players are doing today

      His betting on baseball does not negate his accolades as a player. Good guy or bad guy, his stats and accomplishments are what they are.
