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.

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."
