Rose Says He Bet on His Team Every Night

NEW YORK (AP) - Pete Rose says he bet on the Cincinnati Reds
every night when he managed them, but would like another chance in
a major league dugout despite his lifetime ban because of gambling.
Rose talked about his gambling and other topics today on "The
Dan Patrick Show" on E-S-P-N Radio. The banned Rose said he thinks
he should be reinstated and he hopes a new exhibit in Cincinnati is
a sign baseball will soften its stance toward him.
If reinstated, the 65-year-old Rose said he would like to again
manage in the majors.
The career hits leader also says he supported Barry Bonds and
Mark McGwire, who fell far short in his first time on the Hall of
Fame ballot.
Rose finished his career in 1986 with 4,256 lifetime hits.
