Rocker raffles night of drinking with him in Cooperstown

Hall of Fame weekend brings out a ton of former big leaguers.  From Hall of Famers to Pete Rose…it’s a veritable smorgasbord of All-Stars from years past. This year, however, is a little different.  Probably thinking there’s a way to cash in on the glut of Atlanta Braves fans making the trip north…there’s also John Rocker.  And, sure, it’d be easy to suspect that Rocker...

Hall of Fame 2014: Another Year Without Rose

Here we are, another Hall of Fame weekend, and once again the all time hit king Pete Rose will once again be absent. Still serving a life time ban for gambling on the game of baseball, Rose will be on the outside looking in. Whether or not he should be in the position he is in, is up for debate.

The Baseball Cards of Tony Oliva

The 1963 Topps set is most famous for Pete Rose’s rookie card, but this is a really good card too…all four players on this card (including the newly inducted Tony Oliva) went on to excellent Major League careers, with each man playing in over 1000 MLB games and hitting more than 100 home runs. In 1971 Oliva appeared in one of the first 3-D card sets ever made, for Kellogg...

Dear Bud Selig and MLB: It’s Time for Pete Rose

Dear Mr. Selig, It’s time. It’s time to put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame. It’s time for the All-Time hits leader to be recognized as such in a museum devoted to recording the best baseball has to offer.

Saberhagen remains adamant that Rose should be in Hall of Fame

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Bret Saberhagen hasn't changed his mind. It's a travesty, the former Royals great believes, that baseball's all-time hits leader, Pete Rose, isn't in the Hall of Fame.
