Pete Rose won’t be back in baseball any time soon.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has rejected Rose’s application for reinstatement, the New York Times reported Monday, citing three sources. MLB has not announced its decision.
Rose was banned from the game in 1989 by Bart Giamatti after it was discovered that he had bet on baseball, which he denied for nearly two decades.
This is the third time Rose has applied for reinstatement; Fay Vincent denied his request in 1992, Bud Selig denied him in 1997 and now Manfred has shut the door on Rose.
Baseball’s all-time hit king, Rose is not in the sport’s Hall of Fame.
