A lawyer for Pete Rose today said an interview with one of Rose's primary accusers has been canceled because of "numerous unfair conditions," including asking for $25,000.

Pete Rose's attorneys said they called off an interview with one of the Cincinnati Reds manager's leading accusers because the man demanded a $25,000 guarantee that they would not reveal details to the media. Ron Peters, who is awaiting sentencing on drug and income tax charges, said it was a "cheap shot" to accuse him of making unfair demands in exchange for the chance to cross-examine him about Rose's alleged gambling. The interview had been set for Saturday. The former restaurateur said he had consented to be interviewed by Rose's attorneys "to try to be fair to Pete."

A state judge, ruling that baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti "prejudged" evidence that Pete Rose allegedly bet on baseball games, has blocked a hearing today at which Giamatti could have banned Rose from baseball for life. Judge Norbert A. Nadel of the Hamilton County Commons Pleas Court issued a 14-day temporary restraining order Sunday barring Giamatti from ruling on the evidence, and ordered that no action be taken against Rose during that time. Rose's lawyers will return to Nadel's court July 6 to seek a temporary injunction to indefinitely remove baseball's involvement in the Rose affair.

Denny McLain, ex-pitcher and ex-con, spoke from the heart Friday when discussing Pete Rose, the embattled Cincinnati Reds manager who faces a possible lifetime ban from baseball for allegedly betting on his team. Nineteen years ago, as a member of the Detroit Tigers, McLain was suspended by Bowie Kuhn, the then-rookie baseball commissioner, for associating with gamblers. Later, he served 29 months of a 23-year prison sentence for racketeering, extortion, conspiracy and cocaine possession.

The gambling accusations against Manager Pete Rose of the Cincinnati Reds were compounded Tuesday with the release of testimony by a former associate that Rose attempted to get involved in cocaine deals and offered to store cocaine in his house. Paul Janszen, a former house guest of Rose who claims he ran bets for the Reds' manager, also told baseball's special investigator John Dowd in February that Rose, seeking tax-free cash, once asked him to set up a cocaine ring and include Rose in it. Janszen also said that Rose told him he might consider throwing a game if he had a large bet on it and that Rose checked with other managers regarding the physical status of their players before deciding whether he would bet on their teams.

A former friend of Pete Rose said he plans to tell a federal grand jury that the manager of the Cincinnati Reds gambled and knowingly associated with wealthy drug traffickers, the Cincinnati Post reported Wednesday. Michael Fry, among those who have linked Rose to alleged gambling, told the newspaper that he has personal knowledge that Rose was behind in payments to his bookmaker, Ronald Peters. Peters has told investigators that he "took bets over a period of two years from Rose that could very well amount to in excess of a million dollars," said Robert C. Brichler, an assistant U.S. attorney in Cleveland.
