Pete Rose, who is to be sentenced Thursday for filing false income tax returns, is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday on his right knee. He injured the knee Sunday playing stickball with children at a family reunion in Indiana.

Rose is to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge S. Arthur Spiegel on two counts of filing a false income tax return. He pleaded guilty to the charges and accepted a plea agreement April 20.
