Pete Rose dismisses sexual misconduct questions at Phillies bash: 'It was 55 years ago, babe'


Pete Rose dismissed questions Sunday about his first appearance on the field in Philadelphia since the franchise scrapped plans in 2017 to honor him because of a woman's allegation that she had sex with baseball's hit king when she was a minor."It was 55 years ago, babe," Rose told a female baseball writer for The Philadelphia Inquirer. Rose made his first appearance on the playing field in Philadelphia since receiving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball in August 1989. He agreed to the ban after an investigation for MLB by lawyer John Dowd found that Rose placed numerous bets on the Cincinnati Reds to win from 1985 to 1987 while he was playing for and managing the team. The woman, identified as Jane Doe in 2017, said Rose called her in 1973, when she was 14 or 15, and they had sexual encounters in Cincinnati that lasted several years. She also alleged Rose met her in locations outside Ohio for sex. Rose acknowledged in 2017 that he did have a relationship with the woman, but he said it started when she was 16. He also said they never had sex outside Ohio. At the time, Rose was in his mid-30s and was married with two children.

Pete Rose dismisses sexual misconduct questions at Phillies Alumni Day


Pete Rose dismissed questions Sunday about his first appearance on the field in Philadelphia since the franchise scrapped 2017 plans to honor him because of a woman's claim she had a sexual relationship with baseball's hit king when she was a minor. "It was 55 years ago, babe," Rose told a female baseball writer for The Philadelphia Inquirer. The 81-year-old Rose declined to answer any more questions in the dugout moments after a team photo in the outfield meant to celebrate the Phillies' 1980 World Series championship team and other former players. The original 1980 anniversary celebration was postponed for two seasons because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pete Rose Gives Sexist Reply To Female Reporter About Alleged Statutory Rape


Pete Rose didn’t want to discuss allegations that he had sex with a teenager, but it was how the ex-baseball star dismissed the query that earned him headlines on Sunday. Rose, MLB’s all-time hits leader, was honored with other members of the Philadelphia Phillies’ 1980 World Series team at Citizens Bank Park. He was asked by a female reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer if his presence “ sends a negative message to women, given allegations that surfaced in 2017 that he had a sexual relationship with an underage female in the 1970s.” “No, I’m not here to talk about that,” Rose told the Inquirer’s Alex Coffey. “Sorry about that. It was 55 years ago, babe.” Rose said in court documents that he thought she was 16 at the time. He could not be charged with statutory rape because the statute of limitations had expired, the Inquirer noted.

It's time to permanently ban Pete Rose from our minds after Sunday's disgraceful interview | Opinion


At what point do we say we've had enough of Pete Rose? We've had 33 years to come up with an answer. The baseball legend gave us another reason over the weekend to permanently ban him from our minds after he made a sexist comment.

The day Pete Rose proved he does not belong in baseball. Or anywhere in public.


If there is one compliment that you can give Pete Rose without feeling the need to rinse your soul out with Listerine, it is that he has consistently kept the world informed about how unattractive a human being he really is. There are plenty of celebrities who act one way in public and another in private. Rose? He’s never paid much attention to his surroundings. From his infamous on-field push of umpire Dave Pallone to his long list of off-the-field transgressions (illegal gambling, tax evasion, etc.), Rose has always made it perfectly clear to anybody with an ethical pulse that he was, is, and will continue to be a bona fide and unapologetic jerk.

Pete Rose can't seem to help himself


As the years go by, I soften and start to believe Pete Rose deserves to be in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame. And then he opens his mouth. No, Pete, don’t do it, just smile, sign the cards and take home your loot. If someone asks you a nonbaseball question, just stammer something about not having lived a perfect life and express regrets. Try apologizing, even if you don’t understand what you’re apologizing for. Sigh. Would it have been asking too much just to leave off the “babe?” Dismissing it as being irrelevant for happening a long time ago doesn’t necessarily get you off the hook, but it doesn’t create any headlines, either. It isn’t a red cape waved in front of a society that is still making up its mind about what your legacy will be. But then, that wouldn’t have been the Rose way, because it would have demonstrated a sense of self-awareness that has been notably absent in the rest of his 81 years. In a meaningless All-Star Game, Rose bowled over Ray Fosse in a close play at home plate, effectively ending the catcher’s career. Yet when thrown a tough pitch that ended his own 44-game hit streak, second to Joe DiMaggio, Rose complained that the pitcher had treated the at-bat “like it was the seventh game of the World Series.”

Padecky: With Pete Rose, winning scrubs just about everything


There Pete Rose stood at home plate, a week ago Sunday in Philadelphia, slightly bent at the waist, remarkable in itself. Rose was on his feet. Considering his baggage he should have been on all fours, crawling toward home. A lesser man would be down there. But Pete Rose has never been a lesser man. Rose is willfully, unapologetically, sensationally even, resistant to the hurricane blowback his behavior has created. Banned from baseball for gambling, found guilty of income tax evasion, recently accused of statutory rape, Rose shrugs as if all that were mere mosquitoes to slap away. So what that Rose has more baggage than the underbelly of an Amtrak train. Winning is a great deodorant. It freshens that which otherwise would permanently soil. Celebrity can not only skirt the truth, it can even ignore it.
