Well this is petty and asinine. Tim McCarver appeared on The Dan Patrick Show this morning after DP returned from a summer vacation and dropped a nugget about the paranoia that permeates throughout Major League Baseball. The Fox analyst revealed MLB restricts them from showing video of all-time hit king Pete Rose, and the same goes for ESPN as well.
Rose has been part of at least one of the classic All-Star Game moments, so pretending he doesn't exist seems like a stretch for the iron claws of Uncle Bud. Why now this pointless policy, though? We've seen him at plenty of MLB games before, he's finally admitted his crimes and come clean, heck he even had his own reality show. And NOW MLB is going to try to wipe him from the history books? Absurd.

MAKES ME SICK. THE GREATEST BASEBALL PLAYER ON THE PLANET EVER, AND HE MUST BUY A TICKET TO SEE THE ALL STAR GAME. HE PUT THE ALL STAR GAME ON THE MAP. SHAME ON ESPN AND FOX FOR NOT SHOWING HIM. BUD MUST BE REPLACED! PETER EDWARD ROSE FOREVER BART GIAMATTI NEVER.
Yea, I just saw the Rose All Star play on ESPN. I'm pretty sure I've seen it there before also, maybe it's a FOX thing...or just Tim trolling us
If McCarver is correct, it would be the first time he has been correct about anything since the Yankees-Diamondbacks series in 2001.
Since when do we pay attention to Tim McCarver??? It's not true. Pete Rose shows up quite frequently on ESPN -- who, oh by the way, McCarver does not work for.
May be true about Fox but I don't watch enough baseball on Fox to know.
@PaulLewis banned froe any baseball activities. I think he was allowed on the field for I when they selected the greatest players. While he can not be elected to the HOF, he is represented there. It is stupid not to show videos of him
