Now that there should be at least a chance for Pete Rose to get into the Hall of Fame given the appointment of a new commissioner, the 25-year anniversary of Rose’s banishment for life from baseball and the 1989 comments made by then-Commissioner Bart Giamatti that Rose should at least be considered for the Hall of Fame (see Kallas Remarks, 8/22/14), new Commissioner Rob Manfred should allow Shoeless Joe Jackson to be considered for the Hall of Fame as well. WHAT HAPPENED? As many of you know, Joe Jackson, one of the greatest players ever (.356 lifetime average (only trailing Continue reading
