Daniel Bard Newsbeat

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Ex-Red Sox setup man Daniel Bard healthy, ready to bounce back - Sports - The Boston Globe

Rose knew the consequences of his gambling should he get caught. He got caught.

More than 25 years have passed since Pete Rose was banned from baseball by commissioner Bart Giamatti for betting on baseball games.

The all-time hits leader never got on the Hall of Fame ballot.

I’ve always agreed with Giamatti’s decision of the lifetime ban, and with his decision to allow Rose to apply for reinstatement at some point. After all, gambling on baseball games while you’re uniformed personnel is an egregious offense, compromising the game’s integrity. For those reasons, Bud Selig was right not to have allowed Rose to be relevant in baseball.

But after 25 years, at age 73, has Rose paid for his crime? Granted, it took some 15 years for him to admit to betting on games.
