Baseball's long history of gambling peaked with the Pete Rose scandal. The Cincinnati Reds legend, baseball's all-time leader in hits and games played, bet a minimum of $10,000 on each of the 52 Reds games in 1987, according to prosecutors. Though he always bet on a Reds' win, his actions were still unethical. Rose cut a deal with MLB, agreeing to a lifetime ban from baseball. He has petitioned to be reinstated to qualify for the Hall of Fame.
