It seems as if the Reds have decided to lift the ban on Pete Rose.
The Cincinnati Reds announced on Tuesday that Rose will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame.
As part of their Hall of Fame weekend June 24-26, the Reds will also retire Rose's No. 14, hold a 40-year reunion of the 1976 world champion Reds and have a banquet where Rose will receive the red sports coat Hall members wear.
"This is an honor, that you can't just believe how you feel,'' Rose said at a news conference, noting that he grew up a Reds fan and was born a few miles from the Great American Ball Park where he will be honored.
The Reds will unveil a statue honoring Rose at a later date. Rose was asked what he'd want the statue to portray.
"Well, I sure as hell don't want it to be me standing at the $2 window at Turfway," he said, poking fun of his gambling reputation. As a player, he was part of the "Big Red Machine" that won two World Series. Rose passed Ty Cobb as career hits leader with No. 4,192 on Sept. 11, 1985, and he finished his career with 4,256 hits.
