86th MLB All-Star Game

Major League Baseball will not be reinstating Cincinnati Reds legend Pete Rose.  The "New York Times" reports commissioner Rob Manfred has chosen to leave Rose's lifetime ban from the sport in place. 

The all-time hit king was banned for betting on baseball while managing the Reds in the 1980's.  Rose met with Manfred at the MLB offices in September to plead his case for reinstatement, and Manfred said he would make a ruling by the end of the year.  Rose denied betting on the game for nearly 15 years before finally coming clean in 2004.  "Charlie Hustle" finished his playing career with 4,256. 

Lance McAlister from Cincinnati radio station WLW put together a great timeline of the Pete Rose saga. Click here to check it out.

Fans took to Twitter to debate whether or not the all-time hit king should be reinstated.
