Rose of­fers his take on sign steal­ing

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - SCOREBOARD -

Pete Rose was tak­ing a break from sign­ing au­to­graphs at the MGM Grand ho­tel when asked a ques­tion he’s uniquely qual­i­fied to ad­dress.

What’s worse, bet­ting on base­ball or cheat­ing at base­ball?

“I don’t know,” Rose tells The As­so­ci­ated Press. “All I know is I’ve been sus­pended for 30 years now. I don’t know any­body that’s been sus­pended for 30 years.”

But while Rose was guilty of do­ing things not in the best in­ter­est of base­ball, he said he wasn’t much of a sign thief.

“I bat­ted 15,000 times and I never wanted a guy on se­cond to tell me what was com­ing,” he said. “I didn’t want to know be­cause he might be wrong and I wasn’t a guess hit­ter any­way so it wouldn’t have helped me much.”
