WASHINGTON (AP) – The head of the major league baseball players’ union thinks steroid use shouldn’t keep a player out of the Hall of Fame.

Michael Weiner told the National Press Club on Wednesday he thinks the Hall of Fame “is for the best baseball players that have ever played.”

Weiner thinks Pete Rose should be in the Hall despite Rose’s history of gambling, and he expects that 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.
