The Pete Rose ban is stupid. People have been put in the hall of fame; Baseball and other sports. Who have cheated, used performance enhancing drugs, racists, bigots, etc. And their allowed in or don’t lose the honor. Pete gambled which is anything the rules and he is banned for life. He never threw a game. He is considered one of the best players ever. Even today his knowledge on the game, players, the finer details few really get he’s an expert at. And again he’ll never be honored for any of that…because he bet on a few games.
