10 Good Reasons Why Pete Rose Should Be in Baseball by Mike Albert

There are too many reasons for Pete Rose to be included in baseball to ignore Pete's banishment any longer.

With the retirement of baseball's commissioner looming, the opportunity presents itself to lobby on Pete's behalf, both to the outgoing and the incoming commissioner. Pete turns 70 this month, and has admitted his faults and apologized.

Attendance at major league ballparks last year was over 73 million. There is great opportunity to set the record straight and correctly represent this chapter in American sports history.
