Pete Rose and The Hall of Fame- A Personal and Historical Perspective

For your chance to win a Pete Rose Autographed Bat.

Podcast Highlights

An athlete once said, “The Hall of Fame is for great ballplayers, not great people.” Still, there is a difference between hell-raising and gambling. With the recent Supreme Court ruling which allows internet wagering, the conversation has worked its way back to Pete Rose. Almost every fan has heard or read what Pete has to say about that but I thought it was a good time to revisit it and put it in some historical perspective.

    I saw the “Big Red Machine” play as a child. So many are in the HOF who took performance enhancing drugs. All Pete did was gamble…. FREE PETE

    I grew up watching Pete Rose play ball and he was such a great role model! Although Pete made a few mistakes later in life, we have to remember he is only human. Compared to what other athletes in the past have been found guilty of I feel Pete has been robbed. Let’s correct this now while he is still with us.
