Reds given permission to honor Hit King

The Reds have been given permission to recognize the 25th anniversary of Pete Rose breaking Ty Cobb’s all-time hit record.  Rose recorded his 4,192nd hit on September 11, 1985.

Major League Baseball has tried to make Rose a ghost in Cincinnati and throughout baseball.  The Reds sell jerseys with “Bench – 5″, “Morgan – 8″ and “Perez – 24″ on the back.  However, the “14″ jersey that is sold in the team shop is without a name.

Hopefully, this is a step in the right direction toward Rose being integrated back into the game or at least into the Hall of Fame.  With all of the problems in sports today, allowing a man who made a mistake over 20 years ago to be honored for a remarkable achievement seems like the least the commissioner’s office can do.
