Scully wouldn’t back Rose for Hall of Fame


Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully says he wouldn’t vote Pete Rose into baseball’s Hall of Fame.

Scully, 88, discusses Rose in an interview for the upcoming March issue of AARP Bulletin.

Scully was asked by writer Jon Saraceno whether he would vote to induct Rose if Scully had a say, which he does not. “I wouldn’t,” Scully said. “Should he be in? He should be. But by his own hand, he locked the door and kept himself outside.”

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred in December rejected Rose’s bid for reinstatement partly because the former Cincinnati Reds star still bets legally in Las Vegas, where he lives.
