LOS ANGELES (AP) — Court records show Pete Rose has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years.

The 69-year-old former baseball star cited irreconcilable differences for the split, but his petition did not offer any additional details. A phone message left for his attorney, Joseph Mannis, was not immediately returned.

Rose is the game’s all-time hits leader. He is currently serving a lifetime ban from baseball, and has admitted he bet on games in which he managed.

Rose and his second wife, Carol, were married in April 1984. He did not indicate a date for their separation.

His court filing is asking a judge to award him all of memorabilia, including jewelry, he acquired before the marriage.
