MLB Considers Pardon for Pete Rose

Prompted by an interview between Hank Aaron and reporters in which Aaron indicated he'd like to see Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame, MLB commissioner Bud Selig is reportedly considering lifting Rose's lifetime suspension from baseball. Rose was banned in 1989 for gambling on the sport. Hank Aaron has sway over Selig, as the two are close friends. Former teammates of Rose on the Hall of Fame's board of directors, Joe Morgan and Frank Robinson, have also indicated support for reinstating Rose.
