PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Phillies have decided that “due to recent event” Pete Rose will not participate in Alumni Weekend festivities at Citizens Bank Park on August 10th through August 13th.
Rose said, “While I am truly honored that the Phillies fans voted for me to be this year’s Wall of Fame inductee, I am concerned that other matters will overshadow the goodwill associated with Alumni Weekend, and I agree with the decision not to participate.”
The Phillies have announced they will not distribute the Pete Rose bobble figurine giveaway on Friday, August 11.
Fans with tickets for Friday, August 11th or Saturday, August 12th can exchange their tickets for any remaining 2017 game or receive a refund at any Citizens Bank Park sales window or by mailing their tickets to The Phillies, One Citizens Bank Way, Philadelphia, PA 19148. Exchanges or refunds must be processed by October 1, 2017.
