Preview: Reds Hall of Fame Induction Weekend

FOX19 NOW/file FOX19 NOW/file

This weekend, Pete Rose will finally get into the Hall of Fame - the Reds Hall of Fame.

The Hit King will be inducted during the 2016 Reds Hall of Fame Induction. His number 14 jersey also will be retired.

This is the first big event since Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announced earlier this year he would not lift Rose's lifetime ban from the game.

"He's charged up," said Reds Chief Operating Officer Phil Castellini in an appearance Tuesday on FOX19 NOW Morning News.

"We've been waiting to do this a long time. We respectfully waited for the league to kind of do what they were going to do whether he was going to be let back into the game. That's been decided so almost immediately after that announcement we got permission to move forward with our plans in Cincinnati."

The honor means Rose, 74, no longer has to ask permission to participate in Reds celebratory events.

Rose is the sole inductee for the class of 2016.

Here's the schedule of events:
