From Mike Ditka to Dennis Rodman, a significant portion of presidential candidate Donald Trump's endorsements have come from famous sports figures.

On Sunday, the Republican frontrunner added another name to that list, as he took to Twitter to proudly display an endorsement from MLB legend Pete Rose in the form of an autographed baseball.

Rose was one of the best to ever play the game, but he has been banned from baseball since 1991 for betting on the sport while he was playing for and later managing the Cincinnati Reds.

Current MLB commissioner Rob Manfred upheld Rose's ban in December.
