• Rose disappointed life ban stays but loves game


    LOS ANGELES: US all-time hits leader Pete Rose said Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) he was disappointed that his life ban from Major League Baseball remains in place. Rose spoke in Las Vegas a day after major league commissioner Rob Manfred said he would not end Rose’s lifetime banishment for betting on baseball as the Cincinnati Reds manager, a punishment imposed in 1989. Rose, 74, works for Mandalay Bay casino in Las Vegas and says he has his gambling under control, but Manfred was unhappy that gambling remains a major portion of Rose’s life. Rose thanked Manfred for meeting with him last September and said he knew he put the first-year commissioner “in a tough spot to make a judgment on my situation.”
