Pete Rose will be part of the Phillies Alumni Party

Philadelphia – Pete Rose will appear on the field in Philadelphia next month for the first time since receiving a life ban from Major League Baseball.

Rose agreed to a life ban in August 1989 after an MLB investigation by attorney John Dodd found that Rose placed several bets on the Cincinnati Reds to win from 1985-87 while playing for and managing the team.

The leader of professional baseball successes will be part of the Phillies Alumni Weekend, and will be introduced on the field along with several of his former 1980 World Championship teammates on August 7.

1980’s Larry Bowa said during the Saturday night television broadcast of The Cubs-Phillies that Rose, 81, will appear at the event. A Velez spokesperson confirmed Boa’s statement.

Rose has appeared at ceremonies in Cincinnati since she was banned.

Commissioner Rob Manfred denied his request to reinstate the MLB in 2015. Rose applied again in 2020.

A 17-time All-Star, Rose earned 826 out of 4,256 results during his five years with the Phillies from 1979 to 1983.
