|Baseball legend, Pete Rose, who so publicly fell from grace after it emerged that he frequently bet on ball games, has been an outcast from the sport since he was banned in 1989. Now, following his first candid apology with the publication of his autobiography, My Prison Without Bars, Betcbsports, perhaps somewhat insensitively, is taking bets on what happens now. |
The sportsbook is offering even money that Pete will be reinstated by Major League Baseball by opening 2005 following his public admission, and 2-1 against. Likewise, the odds on him being admitted to the prestigious Hall of Fame 2-1 in favour and even money against.
Rose told the AP he'd do 'anything they say' to gain reinstatement, but wouldn't guarantee that he'd refrain from gambling altogether. 'They also have to understand that one of my means of entertainment is periodically going to the races,' he said.
