Selig unmoved by support for Rose

As his term winds down, MLB commissioner Bud Selig hasn’t changed his outlook on Pete Rose’s lifetime ban for gambling.

Selig visited Cincinnati on Friday for the opening of an urban youth academy, and then drove down Pete Rose Way to visit Great American Ball Park and the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum that contains many references to baseball’s hits leader.

He declined to talk about Rose’s case directly, but gave no indication that he’s inclined to change his mind and reinstate him before he leaves office in January. He acknowledged that Rose still has a lot of support in his hometown.
