    Default Pete Rose Jr. faces jail time

    Rose Jr. faces jail time
    Hit King's son guilty of distributing drug to teammates
    Posted: Monday November 7, 2005 11:49AM; Updated: Monday November 7, 2005 2:15PM

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Pete Rose Jr., the son of baseball's all-time hits leader, pleaded guilty Monday to charges that he was distributing GBL, a drug sometimes sold as a steroid alternative, to his minor league teammates.

    The 35-year-old Rose wore a suit and tie when he appeared before a federal judge in Nashville, saying nothing but "yes, sir" when asked if he understood the charges and his plea.

    The Drug Enforcement Administration said Rose's arrest was part of a larger investigation into a major GBL trafficking organization. Rose surrendered to authorities shortly before he entered his guilty plea.

    The indictment said Rose admitted he received GBL from a person in Tennessee while a member of the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.

    He also said he supplied half the players on that team with the drug. Rose said his teammates would take GBL to "wind down" after games, DEA spokesman Rusty Payne said.

    Under a deal with prosecutors, Rose could be sentenced to 21 to 27 months in federal prison and fined up to $1 million.

    GBL, or gamma butyrolactone, is sold under the counter at retailers and gyms with claims to build muscle, improve physical performance, enhance sex, reduce stress and induce sleep. When taken orally, GBL is converted to the "date-rape" drug GHB, or gamma hydroxybutyrate.

    Lookouts assistant general manager John Maedel said Monday the team was aware of the story. "We don't know anything about it and can't comment," he said.

    Maedel said Rose was on the Chattanooga roster in 1997, 2001 and 2002.

    I saw Pete Sr. at a restaurant a few months ago. He was wearing a warm up outfit that was at least 2 sizes too small for him and a bunch of gold chains. He looked like a fat, old, white Mr. T. He actually is a pretty pathetic figure. You get the feeling the guy will end up dying without any real friends or family in his life. Pretty sad.

    Jr's had a pretty tough time. He bounced around in the minors forever. It couldn't be easy having that name and trying to live up to his father's accomplishments (on the field). Also, Pete Sr. was a pretty shitty father from what I've heard.

    'Small mistake'
    Rose downplays son's guilty plea in drug case
    Posted: Tuesday November 8, 2005 7:41PM; Updated: Tuesday November 8, 2005 7:41PM


    CINCINNATI (AP) -- Pete Rose said his son made a "small mistake," has taken responsibility for it and hopes to keep playing baseball.

    Pete Rose Jr. pleaded guilty Monday in Tennessee to distributing GBL, a drug sometimes sold as a steroid alternative. He's scheduled to be sentenced in February and faces up to 24 months in federal prison.

    His father returned to Cincinnati for a charity event Tuesday and played down the offense.

    "I don't think Pete ran a red light or had a speeding ticket. That's the kind of kid he is," Rose Sr. said. "I wish people understood how small the mistake he made is."

    Rose said his son, who turns 36 on Nov. 16, hopes to get back to playing baseball at some point. His son played for the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League last season.

    "Pete's a baseball player," he said. "He just wants to play baseball."

    Rose Sr. set baseball's hits record with the Cincinnati Reds, finishing at 4,256. His son got his only promotion to the majors with the Reds in 1997 and went 2-for-14 with nine strikeouts.

    A federal indictment said Rose Jr. acknowledged receiving GBL from a person in Tennessee while he played for the Reds' Double-A team in Chattanooga. Rose had stints with the Lookouts in 1997, 2001 and 2002.

    Rose Sr. agreed to a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989 for betting on baseball while managing the Reds. He also served a five-month sentence in federal prison in 1990-91 for failing to report income from signing autographs, memorabilia sales and gambling.
