Pete Rose's Gambling Scandal

Pete Rose may arguably be one of the best baseball players of all time, but his gambling history has become part of his sports legacy. In the '80s, rumors of Rose's gambling on games were rampant, and the commissioner eventually asked Rose to take a voluntary ban from the MLB in exchange for the end of investigations into Rose's gambling. It was later revealed that Rose had been betting on Cincinnati Reds games when he managed the team, and he's now permanently banned from both the MLB and the Hall of Fame ballot.
