Out with the old, in with the new ...

Disgraced baseball legend Pete Rose, 69, has filed for divorce from his wife of 26 years, Carol Rose.  Divorce documents filed on Friday indicate the reason for the split is "irreconcilable differences."  Their separation date is yet to be determined.

For those who haven't been following the former Cincinnati Reds switch hitter, he has been parading his Playboy model girlfriend Kiana Kim, 30, in plain sight for over a year.

The unlikely couple appeared on Howard Stern's radio show last year.  The interview was supposed to be all about Pete but Stern only had eyes for Kiana.  She was flaunting a form fitting mini-dress and Rose was grinning like a fool - check out Kiana pics here.

Carol Rose, a former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader, married Pete, aka 'Charlie Hustle',  in 1984.  They have two adult children: a son Tyler and a daughter Cara, an actress who goes by the name Chea Courtney and has appeared in recurring TV roles on Passions and Melrose Place.

Kiana has been a big hit at Pete's memorabilia events -- as seen in a photo after the jump:
