Pete Rose divorcing wife of nearly 27 years in LA
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Court records show banned baseball star Pete Rose has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years.
The 69-year-old Rose cited irreconcilable differences for the split, but his petition did not offer any additional details. A phone message left for his attorney, Joseph Mannis, was not immediately returned.
Rose is the game's all-time hits leader with 4,256. He agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989 after an investigation into his gambling, and that has prevented him from appearing on the Hall of Fame ballot.
Seven years ago, Rose admitted he bet on Cincinnati to win while he managed the Reds in the late 1980s.
Rose and his second wife, Carol, were married in April 1984. She was a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles and he was playing for the Phillies when they were dating. The couple had a son and a daughter, now both in their 20s. His son from his first marriage, Pete Jr., briefly played in the major leagues and is currently a manager in the minors.
Rose did not indicate a date for their separation.
His court filing is asking a judge to award him all of memorabilia, including jewelry, he acquired before the marriage.
Rose wants his wife pay for her own attorney, but is willing to pay spousal support, according to the documents.
