Pete Rose will be allow to particpate in all-star activities this summer

Pittsburgh Pirates v Cincinnati RedsThe MLB all-star game will be on July 14 in Cincinnati this summer. With that being said, there has been a lot of talk about former Reds player Pete Rose’s role that weekend. Rose, who is now an analyst for Fox now will probably be there, but will he be able to participate in the activities? Well new commissioner Rob Manfred was asked about this and he says that Rose will be allowed to be apart of the all-star activities.

 

Commissioner Rob Manfred says Pete Rose will be allowed to participate in activities surrounding this summer’s All-Star Game in his hometown of Cincinnati.

Rose, baseball’s career hits leader and a former Reds star player and manager, agreed to a lifetime ban from the sport in 1989 after a Major League Baseball investigation concluded he bet on his team to win while he was managing the club.

Manfred said initial thoughts about Rose’s role at the July 14 game will come from Reds owner Bob Castellini.

“I’ve agreed with Mr. Castellini that we’re going to have a conversation about what specific kind of participation the Reds are interested in, and we have not had that conversation yet,” Manfred said Thursday during a meeting with the Associated Press Sports Editors. “You can rest assured that he will about allowed to participate in some of the activities.”

 

Rose is still banned from baseball but this might be the first step towards getting reinstated.
