Pete finaaly comes clean. He was my favorite player growing up.

Pete Rose revealed Wednesday that he bet on the Reds "every night" while he was manager of the team and that the Dowd Report was correct when it said he did so.

ESPN Radio

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show on ESPN Radio, Pete Rose said he bet on the Reds to win every night while he was their manager because he believed in his team. Listen

Rose spoke Wednesday with Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann on ESPN Radio to discuss the new Pete Rose exhibit that will be on display at the Great American Ballpark as part of the Reds Hall of Fame. The exhibit will be on display for 11 months.

"I bet on my team every night. I didn't bet on my team four nights a week. I was wrong," Rose said.

Rose said that he believed in his team so much that he bet on them to win every night.

"I bet on my team to win every night because I love my team, I believe in my team," Rose said. "I did everything in my power every night to win that game."

Rose accepted a lifetime ban for gambling in 1989, but denied for nearly 15 years that he bet on baseball. He finally acknowledged in his latest autobiography, published in January 2004, that he made baseball wagers while he managed the Cincinnati Reds.

Rose said he doesn't worry about getting into the Hall of Fame anymore, but if he is reinstated, he hopes to manage again in the majors.


"I quit worrying about it," Rose said about the Hall. The former Reds great said that he thought he was going to be reinstated when he met with commissioner Bud Selig before his book came out. Rose said he met with Selig about a year before the book came out and told him everything that was in the book.

"I really thought I was going to be reinstated. Something changed [Selig's] mind," Rose said.

Rose said he believes it should be up to each individual owner whether he should manage in the majors again.

"[It's] all about dollars, Dan and Keith. If I was ever reinstated. If an owner don't want to win and draw people, don't call my number," Rose said.

Major League Baseball's Hit King also said he thinks that Mark McGwire is getting a raw deal from the writers voting for the Hall of Fame. The reason he said he supported McGwire is because nothing has been proven and they're all "allegations."

"Don't penalize McGwire because you think other guys are taking steroids," Rose said.

McGwire wasn't voted into the Hall of Fame in his first appearance on the ballot in January because of allegations he used performance-enhancing drugs in his career.

Rose admits he made a mistake in betting on baseball.

"I made a big mistake. It's my fault, It's nobody's else's fault," Rose said. However, he said he should be reinstated because "I'm the best ambassador baseball has."

Because of the ban, Rose is not eligible for induction into the Reds' or Baseball's Hall of Fame. He also is not allowed to be involved in most on-field activities, which has prevented the Reds from retiring his uniform No. 14.

Major League Baseball did include him in two events -- 1999's All-Century Team and 2002's 30 Memorable Moments -- that were sponsored by a credit card company.

The new exhibit includes more than 300 items from the career of Rose, who finished playing in 1986 with a record 4,256 hits. His total is reflected at the Reds' Hall in a three-story high wall of baseballs -- one for each hit.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

He broke the game's cardinal rule and the lied about it over and over again for 15 years. He should never, ever be allowed to be a part of it again.

Pete Rose shouldn't even be allowed to buy a ticket for Ticket to a Baseball game again.
There are whispers that he not only bet his team to win, but also to lose!
I hope THAT comes out if it's really true, so he can be vilified to the point where he goes away, and we never hear from him again.

"I'm the best ambassador baseball has."

This is just sad.

Rose deserves nothing more than pity. And that's all the sadder. A person that's pitied is beneath us. A once great player that thought he could do whatever he wanted because of his feats on the field (much like a certain a$$hole in pursuit of the lifetime Home Run record). Someone that believes that his on-the-field exploits should be enough to enshrine him. A person that has no remorse, no contrition.

Thank goodness that the Baseball HOF saw fit to establish guidelines of 'character'.

Many people have said that Boston is one of the best baseball cities in America...well now it's been proven that Boston is #1. All 62,336 major league baseball games played over the 30-year span from 1974 through 2003 were analyzed by Northeastern University economists Kamen Madjarov and John Kwoka in a study of fan loyalty. The Red Sox proved to have the most loyal fans; the Yankees ranked 13th.

http://www.neu.edu/numag/fall06/feature2.shtml

So there you have it.

So there you have it.


Northeastern University Alumni Magazine is published four times a year, in September, December, March, and June, by Northeastern?Äôs Division of Marketing and Communications, 360 Huntington Avenue, 598CP, Boston, MA 02115. Opinions expressed are those of the authors or their subjects and are not necessarily shared by the editors or the university.
What a surprise!! Two Guys from Boston coming up with these result's.

While it is a bias study, I really can't disagree. Sox fan's have alway's been there for their team.
Seeing a game at Fenway is one of the joys of the game. How could you not aprreciate it

The Cub's fan's are right up there too in attendence, but not loyalty..they are there to get drunk, and could care less about the game (..this I heard Buster Onley, and Peter Gammon's say...Cub fans, don't shoot the messenger).
In NYC, we could never stand for the losing like that constantly, and losing the way you do!!
I don't know how you do it Boston?
If I had to live through years like '04 on a constant basis...like you, I don't know how I could handle that.
I guess that come's with practice.
Yeah, we were the first team to lose 4 straight after winning the first 3, but you got to be in it, to lose it!
I give you guy's credit..you accept, and handle losing better than any fan in the World...and you keep coming back for more..Bravo.

Just because they are at NU and self-professed Sox fans, that doesn't mean their study was biased, I don't know how you could even suggest such a thing!

There used to be ALOT of games on my TV the past few years when I had the baseball package. Thanks to Dick Selig who has sold his soul to direct TV, that won't be the case anymore.

They did offer to cable too! But there is a catch. They have to be willing to pay as much as Directv did. So there may be hope for some of you.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/spring2007/news/story?id=2806415




Too funny. Apparantly his teammates are KILLING him for this one....

Only moments before Ramírez walked into the Red Sox clubhouse, David Ortiz's booming laugh had filtered through the air, the big man nearly keeling over with merriment. The television, turned all the way up, had shown a segment of ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" devoted to a curious story that had been making the rounds all day. A grill had turned up on eBay with a bizarre message and a series of seven photographs, among which were two of Ramírez standing next to the silver piece of heavy-duty cooking equipment.

"Hi, I'm Manny Ramirez," reads the ad, listed under the seller "mannyramirez1524," a member since March 18. "I bought this AMAZING grill for about $4,000 and I used it once . . . But I never have the time to use it because I am always on the road. I would love to sell it and you will get an autographed ball signed by me =) Enjoy it, Manny Ramirez."

So in the interests of journalistic integrity (and with an extreme curiosity), a reporter approached Ramírez. (OK, it was this reporter.)

Is the grill yours? Is the ad true?

He said it wasn't. He agreed about a week ago to help out a neighbor in Weston, Fla., by advertising the grill as his own to drive up the price.

Well, you could say that tactic worked, but neither Manny nor his neighbor is likely to collect on the bids that were being posted last night. With someone clearly having fun with Ramirez's gambit -- would his teammates be above suspicion? -- the bidding was up to, ahem, $99,999,999 around midnight last night.

And the only reason it didn't go higher was that the eBay bid window couldn't handle more digits.

The owners choose the commissioner. They can fire him at their leisure. I wouldn't expect anything different than what is happening.


I know.. But its just bull****.
I get to see all of my teams games because I live near them, but this sucks for everyone else..

Amen, Ozzy. It was about the only way I could see my team, the Mets. Now I will have to settle for the occassional ESPN game. The dollar is more important than the fan.


Just a thought, but I am as big (in more ways than one ) a Mets fan as anyone. I don't watch them on TV, but I do listen to as many games as I can. I purchase the "Gameday Audio" package from MLB.com. About the best bargain that I get every year @ $14.95. It may not be for everyone, but not watching every play is no big deal to me. If there is something I really want to see, I can catch the highlights on most any sports website or MLB.com.
