Pete Rose Doesn’t Answer Question About Sex-With-Minor Case

Allegations appear to date back to the early 1970s. Rose reportedly has said he had sex with the woman but believed she was 16.

  • Question was posed by female reporter at ceremony in Philadelphia that honored the Phillies’ 1980 World Series team.
  • “No, I’m not here to talk about that,” Rose replied to the reporter. “Sorry about that. It was 55 years ago, babe.”
  • The retired, 81-year-old baseball player later reportedly apologized to the reporter.
  • Rose can’t be charged with statutory rape because statute of limitations has passed.
