Pete Rose belongs in the Hall of Fame because he was the greatest hitter of all-time, and the bets he placed on baseball did nothing to hurt his personal or team performance on the field. He betted FOR his team which, if anything, gave him more motivation to play better! I do not see how that's detrimental to the game, at all! It motivated him to be a better player and put on a better show for the fans. His gambling had nothing to do with his on-field performance, and the Hall of Fame should reward those who worked hard and produced outstanding results, which Rose did.
