The ‘Franchise-Four’ has now officially been revealed in Cincinnati prior to the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.

We have witnessed it before, the sight of Pete Rose being honored at a big time MLB event.

Yet again – despite the man only allowed to walk “the hall” at his very own house – the Cincinnati Reds great who leads baseball history with 4,256 was honored on a Major League Baseball field in front of the world.

This time it happened to be the 2015 MLB All-Star Game.

Rose capped off the Reds “Franchise-Four” to go along with Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Barry Larkin. Unlike the other 29 franchises, these Reds legends were privy to walking the field because of the home-crowd.

Here’s the full list of the “Franchise-Four” for every MLB team.


The cherry on top was the vote that brought us the “Greatest Living-Four.” These guys were Bench, Sandy Koufax, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays.
