    Stick a Fork in Pete Rose : Evidence of Gambling as Player

    It's a pretty lengthy article, so no copy/paste citing for this one. Any hopes he had of reinstatement as a player are done.

    The short version : A notebook from a 1989 raid that has been sealed until now has record of Pete Rose placing bets on baseball (and other sports) as a player, including on his own games. Some weeks, he lost five figures.

    Yeah, that's where you bend over the toilet, spread your cheeks and say "be gentle"

    I always assumed this. As long as he bet on his team to win it doesnt matter to me. Also betting on other sports and other teams is fine by me. Shoot athletes now are promoting fan duel gambling challenges

    I also assumed he was betting as a player...just makes sense. Yes - betting on yourself is wrong but as long as he wasn't betting to lose and throwing games I see no reason why to punish him further.
