If Pete Rose was truly repentant, he would spend the time he devoted into trying to return to baseball and gaining eligibility to the Hall of Fame into national tours on the evils of sports gambling and warning others not to follow in his footsteps. That’s the best way for him to serve the game.
Instead, he wants the game to serve him (to forgive him, to applaud him, to allow him another steal). The commissioner made the right decision.
Dear Pete Rose: It’s Still a No. Sincerely, Baseball – The New York Times http://nyti.ms/1Tibysq
