CINCINNATI (AP) - By Joe Kay
Hits king Pete Rose says he's "open to almost anything" that Commissioner Rob Manfred might have in mind for reinstatement when they discuss his lifetime ban for betting on baseball.
The former Cincinnati Reds player and manager hopes to meet Manfred - who took over for Bud Selig in January - when the two are in town next week for the All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park. Rose says they'll meet again at some point to discuss his case.
Asked what he'd like to see Manfred decide, Rose said during a conference call on Thursday that "when you're in my situation, you're open to almost anything."
Rose will be honored on the field with other former stars before the game on Tuesday.
