“Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday asked New York Fashion Week attendees if they think Pete Rose should be reinstated by Major League Baseball ― the equivalent of hounding certain sports fans for their opinions on haute couture.

As expected, many fashionistas didn’t recognize Rose’s name. After all, the guy played a long time ago ― his last season as a player was 1986 ― in a sport that has been declining in attendance.
But just when the late night TV segment seemed headed for a complete strikeout, a hero stepped to the plate.
