Dennis Eckersley was asked about Pete Rose’s Hall of Fame candidacy ...
“People are sick of it,” Eckersley said. “I was out to Johnny Bench the other night, because he’s down here in Florida. He’s been hassled from Day 1 about Pete. Pete had an opportunity to turn his life around. That’s all he had to do. He should have copped to it a long time ago and shown that he changed his life. He had his chance. No one wants him there. No one. Just all the fans from Cincinnati. All the players know. You do not break that rule, the end.”
