Manfred says Rose will participate in All-Star Game

Major League Baseball’s new commissioner Rob Manfred participated in a meeting this morning with Associated Press Sports Editors in New York was asked about Pete Rose’s participation in this years All Star Game.

Pete Rose will play a role in this year’s All-Star Game in Cincinnati, the hit king’s hometown and the city where he starred for much of his career, Commissioner Rob Manfred said on Thursday. “You can rest assured he will be allowed to participate,” Manfred said, adding that he will discuss with Reds president and chief executive officer Bob Castellini about how Rose will participate.

Rose, placed on the permanently suspended list by Major League Baseball in 1989 for betting on baseball while manager of the Reds, has applied for reinstatement. Manfred has said he has no timetable to make a decision on one of most intriguing topics that if made, will certainly define his tenure as commissioner. MLB permitted Rose to take part in the introduction of the All-Century Team during the 1999 World Series and also a Reds ceremony in 2013 honoring their 1975 and ’76 World Series championship teams.

The All-Star Game is scheduled to be played at Great American Ball Park on July 14. With a whole weeks worth of festivities taking place in the Queen City. As a huge Red’s fan and a person who believes that Pete Rose needs to be added to the Baseball Hall of Fame I am very pleased that MLB is taking baby steps to possibly allowing that to happen.

Lastly, I would love to know what you the fans think. So I would ask you to comment below on the following question. How would you like to see Pete Rose participate in the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati?
