The case for baseball's all-time hit leader to be reinstated to the game appears to be getting worse with time as Pete Rose's wife claims in new court documents that he continues to be a high-stakes gambler. According to TMZ, documents filed in court recently by Rose's wife Carol state that Pete earns more than $100,000 a month, but continues to gamble at a high rate, so much so that it's left him in debt to various casinos and the IRS. Pete Rose was banned from baseball in 1989 after he bet on baseball games while he was the manager of the Cincinnati Reds. After years of denying that he bet on games, Rose finally admitted to it in a book he authored, although he continues to maintain that he never bet against his own team.
