But this man did more than just on the field, one time Oscar saw a man with the KKK mask on and he ripped the mask off and confronted the man face to face.

Rose was a great player in the 23 years he played, his skills being what should get him into the hall. Pete Rose was banished from baseball for life on August 24, 1989(Lagrave, 2015) for his gambling which broke rule number 21.
