Red Sox manager Alex Cora fired in sign stealing scandal
BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox fired manager Alex Cora on Tuesday, a day after baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred implicated him in the sport's sign-stealing scandal. Cora was the bench coach for the Houston Astros when they won the 2017 World Series and led Boston to the title the following year in his first season as manager. Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were fired on Monday, an hour after Manfred suspended them for the 2020 season for their role in the cheating scheme.

"But this (Astros' situation) is a little different. It's a lot different, actually, and I think that's why the commissioner came down so hard."

Rose, who is MLB's all-time hits leader, was permanently placed on baseball's ineligible list in 1989 for gambling on the sport. In 1991, the Baseball Hall of Fame voted to ban players on the permanently ineligible list from induction.
