Court records show banned baseball star Pete Rose has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years.
LOS ANGELES — Court records show banned baseball star Pete Rose has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years.
The 69-year-old Rose cited irreconcilable differences for the split, but his petition did not offer any additional details. A phone message left for his attorney was not returned.
Rose is the game's all-time hits leader with 4,256. He agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989 after an investigation into his gambling, and that has prevented him from appearing on the Hall of Fame ballot.
Seven years ago, Rose admitted he bet on Cincinnati to win while he managed the Reds in the late 1980s.
Rose and his second wife, Carol, were married in April 1984. She was a cheerleader for the Philadelphia Eagles and he was playing for the Phillies when they were dating.
