Pete Rose banned from baseball, Aug. 24, 1989

NewspaperArchive


    Baseball legend Pete Rose accepted a lifetime ban from the game on Aug. 24, 1989, amid sports gambling allegations. Although already retired as an active player, the sanction subsequently made him ineligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame. More than a decade later, Rose would admit to some of the charges but continued to deny betting against the Cincinnati Reds, the team he managed at the time.

    “Pete Rose, baseball’s all-time hit leader and holder of 19 major-league records, was banned for life today for betting on his own team and other actions that had ‘stained the game,’ according to an article in the Aug. 24, 1989, Herald-Zeitung of New Braunfels, Texas.
