MLB Pete Rose Rob Manfred

Petitions commissioner

16 Mar, 2015

Manfred says he has received a formal request from Rose thatĀ asks for Rose’s lifetime ban to be lifted. Manfred says he will consider the request ‘on its merits.’

I want to make sure I understand all of the details of the Dowd Report and Commissioner [Bart] Giamatti’s decision and the agreement that was ultimately reached. I want to hear what Pete has to say, and I’ll make a decision once I’ve done that.
