PETE ROSE: Fired Over Underage Sex Allegations


Pete Rose has been fired from Fox Sports amid allegations he had a sexual relationship with an underage girl in the 1970s.

The all-time hits leader had been an MLB analyst since 2015.

According to Yahoo! Sports, "The underage sex allegations surfaced last month as part of a lawsuit that Rose filed against John Dowd, the special counsel who oversaw the investigation that resulted in Rose’s banishment from MLB. Dowd said in a 2015 interview that Rose committed statutory rape back in the 1970s with underage girls. Rose then sued Dowd for defamation."

Rose was banned from baseball in 1989 for betting on games. His job at Fox Sports was his first baseball gig in decades.
