Pete Rose bet on the Cincinnati Reds "every night" when he managed them and, despite his lifetime ban because of gambling, would like another chance in a major league dugout. "I bet on my team every night. I didn't bet on my team four nights a week," Rose said Wednesday on "The Dan Patrick Show" on ESPN Radio. "I bet on my team to win every night because I love my team, I believe in my team," he said. "I did everything in my power every night to win that game."

Cincinnati manager Pete Rose bet on his own team but only to win, according to his leading accuser, Paul Janszen. "Sometimes, when Pete didn't like the way Mario Soto was pitching (for the Reds), then Pete would rather not bet," Janszen said in an interview published in Penthouse magazine. "But aside from Soto, he had his money on them. "Pete said betting on the Reds made it more interesting."

Some of the men who played for Pete Rose when he managed the Cincinnati Reds from 1984 to 1989 have the same conflicted feelings about Rose's admission that he bet on baseball as fans do. Dave Parker, Dave Collins, Nick Esasky, Todd Benzinger and Tom Browning all said they had never witnessed Rose placing a baseball bet from the Reds' clubhouse, but none would be surprised if he had.

A special investigator's report to major league baseball on Pete Rose's alleged gambling, made public Monday by a Cincinnati judge, accuses the Cincinnati Reds' manager of betting not only on major league games but on his own team's games as well, from 1985 to 1987. Lawyers for Rose won a temporary restraining order Sunday, preventing baseball from conducting a hearing with Rose--one was scheduled for today--until at least July 6. But the Ohio Supreme Court, responding to a suit filed Monday by the Cleveland Plain Dealer, ordered Judge Norbert A. Nadel of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court to release the report or explain why. Nadel, the same judge who Sunday had issued the temporary restraining order, complied reluctantly with the court's order.

Pete Rose bet $2,000 per game on the Cincinnati Reds and other baseball teams during the summer of 1987 and set up an extensive gambling network over a three-year period, according to a report prepared for the commissioner's office and released Monday. The 225-page report, compiled by investigator John M. Dowd was publicly released by Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Norbert A. Nadel under pressure from the Ohio Supreme Court, which said he had no reason to keep it sealed. On Sunday, Nadel granted the Reds manager a temporary restraining order that blocked baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti from holding a hearing Monday on the gambling allegation.

Pete Rose, whose gambling got him banned from baseball in 1989, said Thursday he feels his induction into the Hall of Fame is inevitable. "This is a pretty good country for giving people a second chance," baseball's career hits leader said. "I won't need a third or fourth chance." Rose, 56, was suspended by Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti after an investigation that determined Rose bet on football.

A bank check from Pete Rose to a man later convicted of bookmaking was found during a 1984 gambling raid, the Boston Herald and the Providence (R.I.) Journal-Bulletin reported Thursday. The newspapers, quoting unidentified sources, said Rose bet with Joseph Cambra of Somerset, Mass., and gave him his 1975 World Series championship ring as payment for a gambling debt. Investigators reportedly examined the alleged check from Rose to Cambra but returned it because it could not be linked directly to the investigation.

Reds Manager Pete Rose will tell baseball investigators that an ex-friend's attempt to blackmail him led to accusations that Rose bet on baseball games, a newspaper reported today. The Cincinnati Post said that four sources, none of whom would permit their names to be used, told the newspaper Rose will tell investigators that Paul Janszen, a Cincinnati body builder now serving a six-month sentence for evading income taxes, tried twice last fall to blackmail him for $40,000. Rose will say he rebuffed Janszen, who allegedly first threatened him, then lied to the commissioner's office that Rose bet on baseball games, including Reds games.

Pete Rose says he was double-crossed by baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti because of Giamatti's public statement that he believes Rose bet on baseball. Rose, in an interview with the Cincinnati Post published today, also did not rule out the possibility he might consider getting counseling for his gambling problem. "I'm not ruling anything out," Rose said at his suburban Cincinnati home. "I don't think I have a problem. But we're not ruling anything out."

Even if Pete Rose applies for reinstatement, baseball officials said Thursday they are in no hurry to consider lifting his lifetime ban. Rose's lawyer, Gary Spicer, met with Robert DuPuy, the lawyer for acting Commissioner Bud Selig, and discussed the process baseball's career hits leader would need to follow if he wishes to lift the permanent suspension Rose agreed to in August 1989. That penalty is preventing Rose from appearing on the Hall of Fame ballot.

The making of a Heisman Trophy winner through a public relations campaign, once standard procedure for college sports information directors, is fast fading from the football scene. In the age of CNN, ESPN, USA Today and telephone conference calls that accommodate 50 or so reporters at a time, the best PR campaign is one that does almost nothing, letting the candidate and his statistics do the talking, several sports information directors told Natalie Meisler of the Denver Post.

Journal-Bulletin reported today that they were told by unidentified sources that Rose bet with the man and gave him his 1975 World Series championship ring as payment for a gambling debt.
