Pete Rose really is out of Fox TV postseason lineup

NEW YORK -- Pete Rose really is out of the Fox Sports lineup.

The network says David Ortiz and Keith Hernandez have been added to the Fox studio for postseason telecasts. They’ll join Alex Rodriguez and Frank Thomas as analysts, along with host Kevin Burkhardt.

The 76-year-old Rose was part of Fox postseason telecasts the last two seasons. But the Hollywood Reporter first reported he wouldn't be back in August, citing sources.

 

A woman’s claim that she had a sexual relationship with the career hits leader when she was a minor became public this summer. Her claim was part of testimony in a federal lawsuit Rose filed last year in Philadelphia against a lawyer whose investigation concluded the former Cincinnati star bet on the Reds while managing the team.

Ortiz worked in the Fox studio during the 2014 World Series. The Boston slugger retired after last season.

Hernandez has been an analyst on New York Mets telecasts since 2006. The first baseman helped the Mets win the 1986 championship.

The Fox telecasts begin Thursday before the start of the AL Division Series games.
