Ohio legislative proposal would back Pete Rose reinstatement

WDTN

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A resolution urging baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred to reinstate former Cincinnati Reds star Pete Rose and make him eligible for the Hall of Fame is getting its first hearing in the Ohio Legislature.

The Senate State & Local Government Committee plans to hear sponsor testimony on the measure Tuesday.

Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after a Major League Baseball investigation concluded he bet on Reds’ games while managing the team. He has applied for reinstatement, but Manfred has not given a timetable for a decision.

Rose, the game’s all-time hits leader, will have a role in events surrounding the All-Star game this summer in Cincinnati, but the extent is still to be determined by Major League Baseball and the Reds.
