Pete Rose may have bet on baseball. First of all, he admitted and apologized for his mistake. Second, several baseball players have done things ten times worse than Rose did. Should Barry Bonds be banned from baseball for life? Third, he always bet on the Reds to win. This would have made him work harder to win. Anyway, Pete Rose was one of the greatest baseball players to play the game and he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.

fenriq, there are reasons why some rules shouldn't be greatly enforced. If the umpire threw Kenny Rogers out of the game, thinl of how the baseball world would respond. The umpires know what they are doing. Also, consider Kenny Roger's point of view. He had already pitched several scoreless innings. He also didn't try to hide his hand.

Look, guys, I was at games 1 and 2 of the world series in Detroit. I couldn't even figure out what the meeting between the umpires and Larussa was about. The media and some of you are blowing this incident way out of proportion. There isn't a player in the big leagues who doesn't get pine tar all over himself during the game. Kenny Rogers also went on to pitch fabulously in that game. Also, Kenny Rogers was not trying to hide his hand or argue with the umpires.
