Pete Rose Gets Honest About Why He Bet on Baseball

Former Major League Baseball (MLB) player Pete Rose explains why he bet on the Cincinnati Reds, a team he played for and managed from 1984 to 1989: “I believed in my team so much, I went one step further and I bet on them.” Rose explains how his illegal actions cost him 60 million dollars and jeopardized his son’s career, also in professional baseball. He wishes the gambling never happened and it was just “a bad dream.” On August 24, 1989, Rose accepted permanent ineligibility from baseball and the MLB stopped investigating accusations that Rose had gambled on baseball games, which Rose denied until 2004.
