Rose Changes Story

Apparently Pete Rose is changing his ways. Rose has now said that he would be willing to apologize for his betting denials over the past 13 years. If he did apologize and admit that he bet on baseball he would have to serve a probationary period in order to gain reinstatement and Hall of Fame eligibility for 2004.

Rose would have to stay out of trouble during his probationary period. If Rose follows the rules he may be reinstated as early as spring training. There is expected to be a meeting some time in February  involving Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, and other baseball officials involving this issue.
