Should Pete Rose be in the Hall of Fame?
This does not qualify as an answer because that does not qualify as a question. Just have a look at this little blurb from the top of his Wikipedia entry:
Rose, a switch hitter, is the all-time Major League leader in hits (4,256), games played (3,562), at-bats (14,053), and outs (10,328). He won three World Series rings, three batting titles, one Most Valuable Player Award, two Gold Gloves, the Rookie of the Year Award, and made 17 All-Star appearances at an unequaled five different positions (2B, LF, RF, 3B & 1B).
He was an All-Star at five different positions. Did you catch that?
If you want to keep him out of the Baseball Hall-of-Good-Boy, we can have that discussion. If you want to keep him out of the Baseball Hall-of-Fame, then you need to be reading the posts over at "What Would Moron Say?". As a fan of the game, I think Charlie Hustle deserves his own wing. He might be one of the top five most famous baseball players of all time.
Look at this way: the HOF is a museum about the history of the game of baseball. Pete Rose is a major part of that history and his legacy, the good and the bad of it, should all be enshrined. I can't believe anyone would even question that.
