    World Series 2015: Pete Rose no longer part of Fox Sports' coverage team
    Pete Rose is done photobombing on Fox Sports — at least until next season.

    That's right, Rose will no longer appear on Fox Sports' pre- and postgame coverage of the World Series, host Kevin Burkhardt announced after the Mets' 9-3 rout of the Royals in Game 3.

    MORE: Best photos from the World Series

    “This is the best October I’ve had since 1980 when I won my last World Series," Rose said. “Thanks, guys. Thanks, Fox."

    Baseball’s all-time hits leader joined Fox Sports in May, appearing on multiple shows, including "MLB Whiparound," "America’s Pregame" and "Fox Sports Live."

    While Rose provided in-depth insight for Fox, he will likely be remembered this season for his antics during a rain delay in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series between the Royals and Blue Jays.

    Don't worry, the Fox producers poked some fun at the 74-year-old after wishing him goodbye.

    UPDATE: Here's a statement from Fox: "Pete was an absolute pleasure to work with this season. He was an informative and entertaining addition to our studio coverage and we look forward to his return next season. We knew at the time Pete agreed to join us that he had prior commitments to multiple events made over a year ago, and it was his desire to honor those commitments. He will be missed by our entire crew but we are lucky to have Kevin Millar join us for the remainder of our World Series coverage."

    No more photo bombs from Pete. Back to Vegas.

    Probably a bad move to have done this.

    He officially met with the Commish last month seeking reinstatement.

    Ruling should come by the end of the year.

    He was awful. Might be the worst in studio guy I've ever seen.

    I STILL think this commish is too close to the Giamatti reign even though we are now 3 removed from 1989.

    Pete is a douche and THAT is what is keeping him from getting what he wants. He has no fucking filter and no decency. Fuck him and his 4256 hits.

    I thought he was really entertaining
    he's a little off kilter--sometimes that's what you need to spice shit up

    The chances of reinstatement are 0.0 as it should be and that's coming from a Reds fan.

    Anyone who wants to read a really comprehensive, well-written account of Rose's life should pick up "Hustle--the Myth, Life and Lies of Pete Rose" by Michael Sokolove. I could not put this book down--unbelievably riveting stuff about how PR became the player & person he did and how his upbringing/background shaped him. The gambling stuff is meticulously detailed, as is the type of thugs, drug dealers, and other assorted lowlifes Pete surrounded himself with when he managed the Reds. Fascinating character study.

    Let the fucker in but do not allow him to attend the ceremony. That should shut everyone the fuck up and put Pete in his place.

    I wonder if Pete has hit Kiana's gash as many times as he got a base hit during his career.

    Now if they can get rid of Harold Reynolds, Tom Verdouchey and Erin Andrews then I would be able to watch the series with the sound on.

    At least he isn't like other icons of his era -- Jenner, OJ and Cosby.
