MLB’s investigation linked Rose and his drug-dealing, bookmaking, baseball gambling, race-fixing, steroids using/dealing, amphetamine using/dealing, income-tax fraud friends, many whom lived in Rose’s houses and hotel rooms.
MLB released some of the investigation but much more was not disclosed as per Rose’s contract with MLB, which threatened to turn the investigation to the government. There were a lot of people, very scary people, who urged Rose to take the deal.

There were a lot of people, very scary people, who urged Rose to take the deal.

I didn't know that scary people urged Rose to take the deal. But sports gambling wasn't legal in Ohio in the '80s. He went through bookies.

I don't know if you know who runs the bookmaking business, but let me assure you, it ain't the Boy Scouts.

Rose associated with all KINDS of low-lifes during this time. He even met them in the clubhouse at Riverfront.

Read the book "Hustle".

Pete was very very stupid.
