After Jail, How Much More Can Baseball Take Away From Rose?

January 19, 1991

Why do so many seem to get so much pleasure from seeing those with fame, fortune and/or accomplishments topple. We are all imperfect. We all make mistakes. Must we be so harsh on those with high visibility for the sake of example ? Have they not already sacrificed elements of their private lives because of their accomplishments and visibility?

Pete Rose has done his time--more so than some guilty of far more heinous acts. Let us take heed as to how our mistakes directly affect the health and well-being of our neighbors when we judge and punish. Let us praise Pete for what he gave us--now let's give back and forgive.
