I thought Pete only hit on 17-or-under in blackjack.
John Dowd, the investigator whose findings led to Rose’s ban in 1989 by former MLB Commissioner Bart Giamatti, claims he was told by former Rose associate Michael Bertolini that Rose committed statutory rape on young girls during his playing and/or managerial career.
In a July 13 interview with WCHE in West Chester, Pa., that hadn’t surfaced until now, the former federal organized crime investigator said, “Michael Bertolini told us that not only did he run bets, but he ran young girls for him down in spring training. Ages 12-14. Isn’t that lovely? So that’s statutory rape every time you do that.”
Rose was floored when told of the allegations in a phone interview Thursday with NJ Advance Media. He vehemently denied the accusations.
“Oh, my God!” the 74-year-old Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies great said while driving from California to Las Vegas. “Where was my family all of this time in spring training? I never went to spring training without my family except for first year when I was a rookie. It’s shocking.
Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed was formally sentenced Friday after pleading no contest last month to a misdemeanor aggravated assault charge.
Reed had two third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges dropped July 17 as part of the plea deal before Wayne County Circuit Court Shannon Walker. Reed was given one year of probation Friday by Walker.
Walker also ordered Reed to perform 120 hours of community service and must pay $4,480 for his victim’s medical fees among various other fees. Reed, who also must have no contact with the complainant, has 42 days to appeal the sentence.
The criminal sexual conduct charges carried a 15-year maximum penalty.
Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Suzette Samuels spoke briefly on Reed’s actions, saying: “I believe this was a case of unbridled arrogance.”

man met Reyes after Friday night’s Gwinnett Braves-Columbus Clippers game and agreed to go to a bar with him.
The woman said Reyes then paid for a hotel room because he didn’t want the women to drive after they had been drinking. One of the women fell asleep upon entering the room, and Reyes allegedly pinned the other to the bed and forced her to have intercourse.
The woman later called 911 and reported the incident. Court records show rape and kidnapping charges were filed Saturday.
Reyes, 24, is out on bond and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 2.

Kukuk and four other defendants were accused of invading a home in Lawrence on November 8th, 2014, attacking the residents and stealing cash and marijuana.
Kukuk, Yusef Kindell (age 21) Driskell Alan Johnson (age 20), Zachary Pence (age 21) and Gabriel Patterson (age 21) all of Lawrence, agreed to rob “these people who sold weed” according to Pence’s testimony against the other defendants. Kukuk came to the crime scene prepared with a backward hoodie with eye slits cut into the hood to disguise his face.
There, Kukuk used a table leg as a weapon to beat KU senior Christopher Adams, Pence testified, while Johnson threatened the man with a gun and “pistol whipped” another resident. Pence said he, Patterson and Kindell had remained near the entrance to the apartment while the alleged crimes were being committed.
Pence and Adams testified that after the victims were brutalized, the men took about $900, 4 ounces of marijuana and an Xbox from the apartment….
Kukuk was drafted by the Red Sox in the seventh round in 2011 from Free State High School in Lawrence, signing for an $800,000 bonus. He pitched in 2014 for Salem in the High-A Carolina League but was released by Boston in December following the arrest.

Left-hander Kevin Matthews, the Rangers’ first-round draft pick in 2011, was charged with one misdemeanor count of driving while impaired on Wednesday morning and today the team released him.
Matthews had been pitching at Single-A in his fourth pro season and had already lost whatever prospect status he had due to injuries and poor performances.
Drafted 33rd overall, he has a 4.56 ERA with 124 strikeouts and 110 walks in 132 pro innings
