  • Pete Rose will be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame this summer!

    The Reds announced this morning via Facebook that Pete Rose will be the sole inductee into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in 2016.

    Pete Rose to be inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame during 2016 Reds HOF Induction Weekend, June 24-26.

    A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. today at Great American Ball Park featuring Reds President and CEO Bob Castellini, Pete Rose and Reds Hall of Fame & Museum Executive Director Rick Walls. Additional information will be announced at that time. Watch the press conference live at http://atmlb.com/1U8BWFx

    “Inducting Pete into the Reds Hall of Fame will be a defining moment in the 147-year history of this storied franchise,” said Bob Castellini. “He is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Reds uniform and it will be an unforgettable experience watching him being honored as such.”

    Rose was selected as the sole inductee for the class of 2016 by the Reds Hall of Fame Board of Directors.

    “Pete Rose’s on-field achievements and impact on the Reds and its fan base are unquestionable and worthy of induction into the Reds Hall of Fame,” said Rick Walls. “We look forward to this summer where, in front of his fans and with his teammates, ‘Charlie Hustle’ will be recognized for his contributions to the rich and distinguished history of the Reds.”
    Obviously, this means there will be no fan vote for this induction cycle, but I'm honestly OK with that. There are only a handful of candidates worthy of consideration, and they would be overshadowed by the attention that Rose will receive. It would be better for others, publicity-wise, to wait until the 2018 cycle.
