Selig still reviewing Pete Rose application

By  | 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Pete Rose's application for reinstatement
remains under review - 12 years after he submitted it.

The career hits leader agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in
1989 after an investigation concluded he bet on the Cincinnati Reds
to win while he was manager of the team.

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday he still is
examining it and did not provide a timetable for a decision.

Rose met with Selig in November 2002. His effort to gain
reinstatement appeared to falter after he admitted in his 2004
autobiography, "Pete Rose: My Prison Without Bars," that his
previous gambling denials were false.
