Pete Rose's plea for reinstatement has been rejected by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, citing his continued gambling and evidence that he bet on games while playing for the Cincinnati Reds, The Associated Pres reported.

Manfred says in a letter sent to Rose and made public Monday that baseball's hits king hasn't been completely honest about his gambling on baseball games. Manfred also noted that Rose continues to bet on baseball games legally, even though his gambling got him into trouble.

Manfred says it's an unacceptable risk to reinstate Rose under those circumstances.

The commissioner says that Rose's standing with baseball's Hall of Fame is a separate matter. He's currently ineligible to be considered for the ballot.
