Phillies Rose wall of fame cancelled

PHILADELPHIA(AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies have canceled plans to honor Pete Rose next week because of a woman’s claim she had a sexual relationship with baseball’s hit king when she was a minor. The woman, identified as Jane Doe this week in a court filing, says Rose called her in 1973, when she was 14 or 15, and they began a sexual relationship in Cincinnati that lasted several years. Rose’s lawyer says the woman’s claims are unverified.
