(The Sports Xchange) - The

the team's Wall of Fame after allegations surfaced this week that
the all-time hits leader maintained a sexual relationship in the
1970s with a girl before she turned 16.

Pete will not participate in the Phillies Alumni Weekend festivities
to be held at Citizens Bank Park on Aug. 10-13, 2017," the Phillies

Rose, who is banned from baseball because he bet on games while
manager of the Cincinnati Reds, had been voted by Phillies fans to
be inducted into the team's Wall of Fame. He was scheduled to be
honored Aug. 12.
