I was very happy to read that Pete Rose was banned from the Hall of Fame. He does not belong in the Hall of Fame. He should never be allowed inside any ballpark under any circumstance.
I went to a baseball card show a few years ago. Rose was very loud and very rude. At one point he started using very foul language. There were hundreds of little kids hanging around.
One of the main criteria to get in the Hall of Fame is behavior on and off the field. If some player is going to be a total jerk to his fans, he doesn't deserve to be honored.
