Rose Wants Back In

NEW YORK -- Pete Rose, baseball's all-time hits leader who is currently serving a lifetime ban from the game, has officially applied for reinstatement.

"Major League Baseball today has received a letter from Pete Rose requesting reinstatement," acting commissioner Bud Selig said Friday. "The matter will be handled in due course."

Rose agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an investigation into his alleged betting on baseball.
