MILWAUKEE -- The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame's inaugural induction ceremony is on hold because initial honoree Pete Rose can't make the event due to a personal matter.
Bobblehead hall co-founder Phil Sklar says the event scheduled for Saturday has been postponed, and that organizers are working to reschedule.
Sklar says Rose cited unforeseeable personal circumstances in postponing on Thursday. The ceremony was to have been held at a downtown Milwaukee theater.
Museum organizers hope to find a permanent Milwaukee location for the hall by the end of the year.
Rose is baseball's career hits leader. The former Cincinnati Reds star agreed to a lifetime ban in 1989 after an investigation for Major League Baseball found Rose placed numerous bets on the Reds to win while playing for and managing the team.
