    He violated the number 1 rule in baseball, if you not going to enforce rules why have them? No one forced ole Pete to bet...he made his choices.

    We have all sinned and come short of the Glory of God.

    No one is perfect, it is a Hall of Fame for a reason, 4,256 hits CANNOT be ignored no matter how hard people try.

    Ban him from the Boy Scouts or Masons, not the HOF.

    Again Pete knew the rules and chose to violate one of if not the most important rule in the game. Why should someone who brought the integrity of the game into question and then lied about it for almost 2 decades be given the honor of being in the HOF?

    Pete should be in the hall, babe ruth was a known alcholic durring proabition so if pete should be left out due to betting on baseball then ruth should be out for breaking federal law

    How can baseball keep Rose out of the Hall Of Fame? The HOF is independent of Major League Baseball, right? Regardless, Pete has been punished enough. IMO, the Hall of Fame is incomplete without the all-time hit leader in it.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Federal law doesn't apply to baseball, plus who wasn't drinking during proabition..

    This is one of the smartest statements I have ever heard regarding this issue!

    Do you think Pete Rose is the only one that gambled on baseball? I'd be willing to bet that there are several HOFers that bet on the game on more than one occasion.

    MLB doesn't keep Pete out, the HOF keeps Pete out. The HOF could tomorrow vote him in, however the HOF has taken the stance that any player banned from MLB can not be eligible for the HOF. They could change that rule tomorrow. MLB has nothing to do with this issue.

    Charlie Hustle should be in, no doubt.

    Betting on baseball is one thing, betting on a game you are playing or managing in is another one altogether. Pete crossed the second line and that will stop my opening statement from being a fact until a posthumous inclusion is allowed. Kinda sad but it is probably what will happen. I liked the 'Big Red Machine' growing up and didn't mind them doing well since they were in the West and The Card were in the East, always enjoyed Pete's work ethic.

    Well i know Frank Robinson, Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, and the majority of guys on the Veterans board have said they want rose reinstated because they would vote him in but they are part of MLB so they can't unless he is.
