Peter Rose the player never did anything wrong, and he is the all time leader in hits. They only knock against him was that he was trying to win to hard as manager , overtaxed his pitching staff: because he had money on every game. They finished in second place 5 times in a row, then win the World Series with the team he built. So, as a manager he results were better than average guy like: Dungy when in Tampa Bay. So, there is not doubt he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Ty Cobb, Mickey Mantle, and Babe Ruth, all had illicit women/illegal gambling problems, and the press knew: but never reported. So, not letting Pete Rose in for the same sins is stupid. Pete Rose belongs in the Hall Of Fame.
