REPORT: Fox Sports Fires Baseball Legend Pete Rose After Decades-Old Allegation Of Sex With Underage Girl

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Pete Rose’s days at Fox Sports have come to an end. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Major League Baseball’s all-time hits leader will not continue at the cable network, where he was slated to return to the desk as part of its coverage of postseason games. Fox Sports declined comment.

The news follows recent allegations that Rose had a sexual relationship with an underage girl in the 1970s. The claim is part of a defamation suit Rose filed last year against attorney John Dowd, who served as MLB’s outside counsel in the investigation that led to the former slugger’s lifetime ban from the sport in 1989 for betting on games featuring the Cincinnati Reds when he was the team’s manager.
