MLB All-Star Pete Rose Is Still On The Outside Looking In

Major League Baseball's all-time hits leader will remain banned from the sport.

In a statement, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred denied Pete Rose's application for reinstatement into baseball. Rose was given a lifetime ban from the sport in 1989 for betting on games.

According to ESPN, Manfred said, "This decision does not affect Rose's eligibility for the Hall of Fame."

It's worth noting, while technically not allowed back in the game, the 17-time All-Star has still been very active in it, especially recently.

Rose took part in last season's All-Star game festivities in Cincinnati, and he joined Fox's broadcasting team during the World Series.
