Pete Rose is giving it another shot, hoping to use the Astros’ cheating to his advantage.

Baseball is currently dealing with a black eye from the Astros’ electronic sign-stealing scandal, and the all-time hits leader is hoping that can help him to get removed from MLB’s ineligible list, which would allow him to be considered for the Hall of Fame.

Rose sent a petition to the commissioner’s office on Wednesday, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed, arguing that since Rob Manfred didn’t punish any players involved in rules infractions, Rose’s 30-plus-year ban for gambling on baseball while managing the Reds should be lifted. Also in the 20-page petition, first reported by ESPN, Rose’s lawyer argues that his punishment is “vastly disproportionate” to punishment of players who test positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

“There cannot be one set of rules for Mr. Rose and another for everyone else,” the letter reads. “No objective standard or categorization of the rules violations committed by Mr. Rose can distinguish his violations from those that have incurred substantially less severe penalties from Major League Baseball.”

Rose was permanently kicked out of baseball in 1989 by then-commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti after an investigation revealed Rose illegally bet on games. Rose agreed to the suspension, but he wouldn’t admit to violating Section D of MLB’s Rule 21, which doesn’t allow players or others involved in the game to bet on the sport.

For 15 years, Rose repeatedly denied he had bet on baseball. But in 2004, Rose admitted in his book, “My Prison Without Bars,” that he had wagered on baseball and the Reds in the 1980s.

“People should know that I’m very sorry that I made the mistake that I did,” he said in a previous ESPN interview. “If you want to look back, which you can, I should have admitted to [Giamatti] the first time he called me in the office in January of ’89, but I didn’t.”

At the crux of his argument is Manfred not suspending any players involved in the Astros’ sign-stealing saga. Only manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow were suspended for a year, and later fired by the Astros, who were fined $5 million by MLB.

“It has never been suggested, let alone established, that any of Mr. Rose’s actions influenced the outcome of any game or the performance of any player,” the petition reads. “Yet for the thirty-first year and counting, he continues to suffer a punishment vastly disproportionate to those who have done just that. Given the manner in which Major League Baseball has treated and continues to treat other egregious assaults on the integrity of the game, Mr. Rose’s ongoing punishment is no longer justifiable as a proportional response to his transgressions.”
