Pete Rose

Fairness: Should Pete Rose be allowed into the Hall of Fame?

Author:

Abstract: 
After all of the tremendous accomplishments that Pete Rose has achieved, including having the most base-hits of all time, Pete Rose got caught up gambling on Baseball. However, this isn’t quite as bad as it may sound because he never purposely threw games to get money. This differs quite differently from the situation in which they came down so hard on. This was the “Black Sox Scandal” in the early 1900’s where the entire team would throw games intentionally for their own gain. As obviously pointed out, Pete Rose’ case is quite different. This paper discusses what “fairness” is and all of the aspects involved. Also, what is the “hall of fame”? Is it set out for admiring accomplishments on the field or off the field?
