Pete Rose has been in the news this week and it probably wasn’t the type of news he was hoping for leading up to his August 12th induction onto the Phillies’ Wall of Fame. Late last month he was accused of having sex with an underage girl back in the 1970’s. The woman claims she was 14 or 15 when it started and Rose claims she was 16, the age of consent in Ohio (where it took place). The statue of limitations has passed.
The morning of his still scheduled induction onto the Wall of Fame, Pete Rose will be appearing for an autograph signing at Poppel Sports in the Plymouth Meeting Mall. The signing is from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Update – There are now reports the Phillies are going to cancel the ceremony.
Update 2 – Phillies have canceled the Wall of Fame ceremony.
