My Vote to the Baseball Hall of Fame go to: Pete Rose!
Wednesday, December 19, 2007
Peter Edward Rose Sr aka Charlie Hustle broke into Major League Baseball on April 8, 1963. He started the season hitless going 0 for a 11. He got his first hit on April 13, 1963 against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the rest is history, as they say in Hollywood. But, this is not Hollywood, this is real world. Charlie Hustle received his nick name, because he played the game at the highest level, he would do what ever it takes to win, except cheat. In the 1970 all star game, Rose was involved in one of the greatest scoring plays of all time. With the game on the line, Rose came around third determine to score. Pete lowered his shoulder and barreled catcher Ray Fosse to score the game winning running. Rose also is the only player in his era to come close to the 56 game hitting streak, by hitting safely in 44 games. Rose went on to break Ty Cobb's record of 4192 on September 11, 1985. He went on to end his career with 4,256 hits, a record that still stands today. He retired from the game unofficially on November 11, 1986. He went on to manage the Cincinnati Reds. He was banned from the game of baseball for gambling in 1989. He has since admitted to gambling on his team to win, but never threw any games. This is keeping him out of the baseball hall of fame.

I feel he should be inducted into the baseball hall of fame based on his stats on the field. Not from the mistakes as a manager. If they let the players that did Steroids and HGH into the Hall why not Rose? What is fair about a player that cheats to beef his stats? I would love to here all your thoughts and opinions!

    I have to say no to Pete... and also to those who have used Steroids. However, Pete know he would be banned for life if he was got betting on baseball. He took the risk and ended up like the "blacksox".

    the all seeing eye~ he took a risk after he was out of the game. Not while he was playing. So he deserve to be in.
