Pete Rose to make first Fox appearance Monday
NEW YORK (AP) Pete Rose is scheduled to make his first appearance for Fox on Monday on Fox Sports 1.
Fox said Thursday he will appear on ”America’s Pregame” during a segment on the show that starts at 5 p.m. EDT, then will be on ”MLB Whiparound” starting at 7 p.m. and on a taped segment of ”Fox Sports Live” at 11:05 p.m.
Fox announced April 18 that it had hired the career hits leader as a studio analyst. Rose agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in August 1989 after an investigation for Major League Baseball concluded he had bet on Cincinnati Reds games while managing the team.
Now 74, Rose applied to reinstatement in 1997, but baseball Commissioner Bud Selig never ruled on it. Rose applied again after Rob Manfred replaced Selig in January.
