    I’ll second that motion. Pete has been getting a raw deal.

    Money, probably. Classy, no, ha, but it never stopped BBM.

    The headline on the poster reads, “ZOMBIE INDUCTION.” Bad choice of font. I blame the art director at Bad Boys Marketing.

    Pete Rose was the Ryan Braun of gambling. Like Braun he denied the allegations until faced with the evidence. Liars HOF, yes; Baseball HOF, no.

    Joe Jackson was banned for life; isn’t it about time recognize the magnitude of his talent?

    Gee, I thought it was the Baseball Hall of Fame, not the Perfect Person who has My Values Hall of Fame. Pete was a Great Ballplayer and should be judged solely on that. If you need perfect Gentlemen, remove Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and many many others. As a matter of fact, the only members would be Jesus, Mohammed, Allah, etc

    Pete Rose was banned for betting on games he was involved in. The book “Shoeless” offers proof that Joe Jackson knew exactly what he was doing in the 1919 World Series. He wasn’t a country boy taken in by the big city gamblers. Their superior talent makes it tragic that they have to be kept out. Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth were not nice men, but neither gambled on the game. (Or did Cobb get down a bet or two? There is some possibility.)

    except that Pete Rose bet on his team when he was the manager, if he bet against his team he could make sure he lost.
    Aside from that, everyone in Baseball, football, and bball knows that gambling on your team will get you banned, it happend in college bball and it has happened in baseball. Pete Rose knew it was against the rules, but he did it anyway. He should never be allowed in the HOF. Just like Shoeless Joe, Pete Rose will be remembered, not for what he did as a player, but for gambling on baseball games while he was a manager

    Pete Rose was permanently banned from baseball (you can read the agreement he signed there) August 23, 1989, for gambling, which added his name to the ineligible list.

    Election Rule 3.E. of the Baseball Writer’s Association of America Baseball HOF Election Rules keeps everyone on that list off the ballot. The HOF Veteran’s Committee (who vote on selecting individuals retired more than 20 years) also has that rule.

    So, Pete Rose can’t even be on the ballot, let alone voted on. It doesn’t matter how great a player he was.
