Pete Rose played in MLB from 1963 to 1986, and managed from 1984 to 1989. Three years after he retired as an active player, Rose agreed to permanent ineligibility from baseball amidst accusations that he gambled on baseball games while playing for and managing the Reds, including claims that he bet on his own team. On April 20, 1990, Rose pleaded guilty to two charges of filing false income tax returns not showing income he received from selling autographs and memorabilia, and from horse racing winnings. On July 19, Rose was sentenced to five months in the medium security Prison Camp at the United States Penitentiary in Marion, Illinois, and fined $50,000.

Rose has appealed directly to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in an effort to restore his eligibility to be elected. In a seven-page letter to the Hall's president on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, Rose's longtime attorney Raymond Genco makes the case that the career hits leader's ban from baseball for gambling in 1989 was not intended to make him ineligible for the Hall of Fame.
