Pete Rose to see new Reds park




The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A piece of the Cincinnati Reds' storied past will get a first-hand look at the team's future on Friday.

        Pete Rose, the all-time hits leader who is banned from the game for gambling, will make an appearance in Cincinnati Friday to tour the new ballpark before appearing at a Knothole baseball game.

        Commissioner Todd Portune and county staff have been trying to organize an event to honor Mr. Rose and other members of the Big Red Machine before Cinergy Field is torn down in December.

        John Allen, the Reds chief operating officer, said the team isn't concerned about Mr. Rose's appearance.

        “We haven't taken possession of the ballpark yet, and it's a county project,” Mr. Allen said. “The county is free to take anyone they want over there and give a tour.”
