Pete Rose to appear on Philadelphia Phillies’ field with 1980 World Series title team

PHILADELPHIA — Pete Rose will make an appearance on the field in Philadelphia next month for the first time since receiving a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball.

Rose agreed to the lifetime ban in August 1989 after an investigation for MLB by lawyer John Dowd found Rose placed numerous bets on the Cincinnati Reds to win from 1985-87 while playing for and managing the team.

Baseball’s career hits leader will be part of Phillies alumni weekend and will be introduced on the field alongside many former teammates from the 1980 World Series championship team on Aug. 7.
