MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Pete Rose may have a role to play in next year's All-Star game in Cincinnati despite his lifetime ban from baseball.
The career hits leader generally is not allowed in any areas of major league ballparks not open to fans. The former Reds star was on the field in Cincinnati last September for the unveiling of a bronze sculpture honoring Hall of Fame teammate Joe Morgan.
The Reds host the 2015 All-Star game on July 14, and Commissioner Bud Selig left open the possibility Rose could play a part in the ceremonies.
Hours before the All-Star game on Tuesday, Selig said the Reds are likely to discuss Rose's participation in the event next summer.
Rose agreed to the lifetime ban in 1989 following an investigation by Major League Baseball that concluded he bet on the Reds to win while managing the team.
