Pete Rose, baseball's hit king, is in declining health, court documents say

The all-time MLB leader in hits, Pete Rose, is said to be in declining health.

Rose's health was described in court documents that are a part of his divorce from his estranged wife, Carol Rose, according to TMZ. The papers say he is on blood thinners for his heart condition.

The Hit King's income has dwindled, the documents say. He is attempting to have his spousal support lowered and divorce finalized.

The divorce has been going on since 2011, according to Yahoo Sports.

Rose is 77 years old. In 1989, the player was banned from baseball because he was found to be betting on the game. Multiple reinstatement requests throughout the years since have been denied.
