MLBPA leader on Hall:

-

The executive director of the MLB Players Associatio­n thinks steroid use shouldn’t keep a player out of the Hall of Fame.

Michael Weiner also told the National Press Club in Washington on Wednesday that he thinks Pete Rose should be in the Hall despite Rose’s history of gambling, and he expects there will be team executives inducted in the Hall who previously engaged in what Weiner called the “massive conspiracy called collusion” against the players.

Weiner said he was speaking his personal opinion and not the official position of the union. He also said it could be noted on the plaque if a player’s career was tainted by allegation­s of performanc­e-enhancing substances.
