Pete Rose

Commentator Frank Deford speaks in favor of reinstating Pete Rose to Major League Baseball and allowing him to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as one of the game's great players. Deford says the betting Rose is accused of doing, occurred while he was a manager, well after he played the game.
