“Inducting Pete into the Reds Hall of Fame will be a defining moment in the 147-year history of this storied franchise,” said Bob Castellini. “He is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Reds uniform and it will be an unforgettable experience watching him being honored as such.”
Rose was selected as the sole inductee for the class of 2016 by the Reds Hall of Fame Board of Directors.

“Pete Rose’s on-field achievements and impact on the Reds and its fan base are unquestionable and worthy of induction into the Reds Hall of Fame,” said Rick Walls. “We look forward to this summer where, in front of his fans and with his teammates, ‘Charlie Hustle’ will be recognized for his contributions to the rich and distinguished history of the Reds.”

  1. It’s nice to see Rose get recognition for his on-field achievements. I wish there was a way to do that without also accepting his off-field actions, but baseball teams and baseball as an institution have condoned far worse things.
