But the newly surfaced documents could spell an end to the 74-year-old legend’s Cooperstown aspirations.

Rose issued a statement to ESPN through his lawyer, Raymond Genco.

This closes the door,” said John Dowd, the former federal prosecutor

Pete Rose’s long insistence that he never gambled on baseball while playing the game may be unraveling, after ESPN unearthed documents it says shows he bet on the Cincinnati Reds while a player-manager in the last year of his illustrious career.

“Since we submitted the application earlier this year, we committed to MLB that we would not comment on specific matters relating to reinstatement,” the statement read. This closes the door,” said John Dowd, the former federal prosecutor who led MLB’s 1989 investigation.

The documents obtained by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” are copies of pages from a notebook seized from the home of former Rose associate Michael Bertolini during a raid by the U.S. The actual notebook has remained under court-ordered seal for 26 years and is currently stored in the National Archives’ New York office.

Rose, the sport’s all-time leader with 4,256 hits, has been banned from the sport since 1989. “We tried to get them. To be sure, I’m eager to sit down with [MLB commissioner Rob] Manfred to address my entire history — the good and the bad — and my long personal journey since baseball. That meeting likely will come sometime after the All-Star break. Most of the bets were for about $2,000.

Dowd said his team had sought the records in order to prove Rose bet on the sport while a player.

. “I need to maintain that. Rose, who would certainly be in the Hall of Fame if not for his ban, has long lobbied to be allowed back into the sport. Postal Inspection Service in October 1989.

– John Dowd, MLB investigator

“We knew that [Bertolini] recorded the bets, and that he bet himself, but we never had his records,” Dowd told ESPN. For the next 15 years, he insisted he never gambled, then in 2004 admitted he had but only as a manager. He refused to give them to us.”

Major League Baseball has historically reserved its harshest punishment for players who gamble on the sport, claiming such wagers affect baseball’s integrity – even if a player such as Rose bet on his own team to win.

“This does it. The sports network said the papers’ authenticity has been verified by two people who took part in the raid, which was part of an unrelated mail fraud probe. Therefore at this point, it’s not appropriate to comment on any specifics.”

In the five months covered by the notebook, Rose allegedly placed at least one bet on baseball 30 times, as well as placing wagers on other sports, ESPN reported

He will likely appeal in federal court.

Story highlights The New York Yankees say they “respect” the decision Alex Rodriguez suspended for 2014 regular season and postseasonDecision will cost slugger $25 million Rodriguez plans to appeal

An arbitrator Saturday upheld most of New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez’s 211-game doping suspension, keeping him out of the 162-game 2014 regular season and the postseason.

Rodriguez, who has claimed he was the target of a MLB “witch hunt,” probably will appeal Horowitz’s decision in the courts or to seek to delay the suspension. . “This is one man’s decision that was not put before a fair and impartial jury,” Rodriguez said, “does not involve me having failed a single drug test, is at odds with the facts and is inconsistent with the terms of the Joint Drug Agreement and the Basic Agreement, and relies on testimony and documents that would never have been allowed in any court in the United States because they are false and wholly unreliable.”

Rodriguez, one of the best players of his generation who was once considered an automatic Hall of Fame candidate, was defiant in a statement released Saturday.

Rodriguez, one of 14 players suspended in the Biogenesis scandal, was the only one who appealed his suspension.

“The number of games sadly comes as no surprise, as the deck has been stacked against me from day one,” said Rodriguez, who has struggled with hip injuries in recent years.

The Yankees said in a statement that they “respect Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, the arbitration process, as well as the decision released today by the arbitration panel.”

Saturday’s ruling stemmed from Rodriguez’s appeal of a his suspension by MLB, which accused him of taking performance-enhancing drugs and having ties to the now-shuttered Biogenesis clinic in South Florida.

Biogenesis was a former anti-aging clinic that MLB said supplied steroids to at least a dozen baseball players.

Major League Baseball did not release details of the arbitrator’s decision, which the players union said it “strongly disagrees” with.

The ruling by Major League Baseball arbitrator Fredric Horowitz will not only cost Rodriguez $25 million in salary, it also further clouds the groundbreaking career of a player who will turn 40 during the 2015 season.

“No player should have to go through what I have been dealing with, and I am exhausting all options to ensure not only that I get justice, but that players’ contracts and rights are protected through the next round of bargaining, and that the MLB investigation and arbitration process cannot be used against others in the future the way it is currently being used to unjustly punish me,” Rodriguez said in a statement.

The former Seattle Mariner, Texas Ranger and now New York Yankee player then took a swipe at Selig, whom he has claimed in the past had an unjustified vendetta against him.

Rodriguez, 38, is fifth on MLB’s list of all-time home run leaders, just six behind Willie Mays.

The 162-game suspension — which is the most severe punishment in baseball history for doping — highlights baseball Commissioner Bud Selig’s recent high-profile crackdown on performance-enhancing drugs. Though he was suspended in August, Rodriguez played out the 2013 season because of the appeal.

When the suspension ends in 2015, Rodriguez will be owed $61 million in a contract that runs through 2017

The athletes also took a computerized test to assess their cognitive abilities.

For now, Bellgowan suggested that parents and coaches take a conservative approach when dealing with student athletes by taking them to specialists when they walk off the field with a headache.

“Maybe there is something going on early on,” he said. The longer the young men had played football, the smaller their hippocampuses were and the slower their reaction time on one of the tests.

“Boys hear about the long-term effect on guys when they’re retired from football, but this shows that 20-year-olds might be having some kind of effect,” said Patrick Bellgowan, the study’s senior author from the Laureate Institute for Brain Research in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“We keep hearing about retired football players having diseases that relate back to smaller hippocampuses,” Bellgowan said. Jeffrey Bazarian said. “How did they get there? I think this study points out the early stages of that.”

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – The brains of college football players may already display the effects of years of taking hits, according to a new brain imaging study.

Bazarian was not involved with the new research, but has studied the brains of young athletes at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, New York.

Bellgowan is also on the faculty at the University of Tulsa, where, he said, “Participation of the athletic department was essential to this work.”

The researchers found that college athletes had hippocampuses between 17 percent and 26 percent smaller than non-athletes. “None of these players were feeling bad but their brain structure isn’t normal.”

Players who had been diagnosed with concussions and those who had been playing for years had smaller hippocampuses – a brain structure critical to memory – compared to those who never played football or played for fewer years, researchers found.

SOURCE: bit.ly/WddS8K JAMA, online May 13, 2014.

Between June 2011 and August 2013 the researchers recruited 25 college football players who had been diagnosed with a concussion, 25 players without a history of diagnosed concussion and 25 similar young men who had never played.

Both Bellgowan and Bazarian said it will take longer studies to find out whether a smaller hippocampus may cause problems for these athletes in the future.

“People try to understand why some NFL players have what looks like Alzheimer’s in their forties,” Dr. Those who had been diagnosed with concussions also had smaller hippocampuses than the players without past concussions.

The researchers write in JAMA that they didn’t find any differences in behavior between players and non-players, but Bellgowan told Reuters Health that a smaller hippocampus is linked to depression, schizophrenia and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).. “Maybe this is just the precursor of it.”

The symptoms of CTE, which tend to set in years after the last traumas, often include memory loss, aggression and dementia.

There has been growing concern over whether the connection between contact sports – like football – and CTE, which is a brain disease known to affect some athletes who experience repeated hits to the head, may extend to younger players.

“The conservative approach is what I’m hoping to get out there,” he said.

The participants had magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of their brains and researchers used the images to measure the volume of certain brain regions

He Kexin of China poses after winning one of two gold medals in the women’s uneven bars at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

So, if a gymnast looks like she couldn’t possibly be 16, there’s a good chance she isn’t yet.

Though He Kexin’s passport officially says that she was 16 at the time of the 2008 Olympic Games, Chinese media reported that she and other teammates may have actually been as young as fourteen at the time.

However, questions were later raised about her potentially being too young to compete.

And this isn’t the first time that allegations of underaged gymnasts have plagued the Chinese team. Ten years after the 2000 Games, the International Olympic Committee stripped that Chinese Team of its bronze medal, after uncovering evidence that star gymnast Dong Fangxiao was only 14 when she competed.

While I could cover them here, it is generally advised that you have completed a boating or boater’s safety course for your area. It’s very important before even starting the boat that you have this clip in place, so that if your key becomes dislodged or you have to pull it out for an emergency, the motor will shut down automatically.

When taking trips out on the pontoon boats fun may be your goal, but safety should always be a priority. The last thing you want is your partying to get in the way of safety and cause a hazard to other boaters or even worse an accident on the dock or water. If your pontoon boat is stored at a dock, it is necessary for it to be tied up to the dock. Then the people on the dock safely board as the pontoon boat motor has been switched on.

On board the pontoon boat it’s essential to have a flotation device. At our dock there are four cleats, two in front and two in back of the boat. Different states have different laws or regulations regarding who is required to have passed a boater safety course before being allowed to even drive a boat on the water. You never know when they will be needed, or if certain passengers are unable to swim.

With many new and used pontoon boats, the key also includes a special clip for the “killswitch” or “dead man’s switch” attached by a cord on the keyring. This article will outline several safety precautions to keep in mind while you’re using your pontoon boat. This is in case of a sudden crash or impact, or if the boat flipped. The boat can hold up to ten passengers, includes a built-in radio, fish finder, and spacious storage for all sorts of items underneath the seat cushions. This clip-on switch provides an important safety function to shut off the boat’s motor. Otherwise, if it is loose or becomes unattached, your boat may float away and hit something! When leaving for an outing on the boat, we always make sure one person is on board while one or more passengers are on the dock to untie the ropes from the cleats. Safety tips for driving the boat are better learned via a safe boating course, so these will be general safety tips for storing your boat and what to do before taking it out.

A pontoon or party boat can be a fun and relaxing way to travel out on the water. Err on the side of caution by having 8-10 of these just in case you have a lot of passengers. The flotation device should always be kept out in the open when your boating, just in case of an accident. Also, make sure to include a number of lifevests, which can be stored underneath the seat cushions on the boat. It is essential that you properly cleat the lines and that the pontoon boat is fastened securely near the dock. You can find out more about your particular state’s laws and regulations at the appropriate Game and Inland Fisheries website for your state, or your state’s gov site.

. We’ve found the pontoon boat to be a lot of fun to take out on the lake for journeys to explore different areas and enjoy the relaxation of being on the water.

While out on the water, there are several safety rules to keep in mind. These spacious boats hold as many as 15 or so people and can allow for sunbathing, music and partying! Several months ago after searching through various listings of used Pontoon boats for sale, we found a great deal on one for just under $5500

Positions for players on both teams are explained below.

Positions for the Offense Team

Quarterback

Denoted in the diagram as Q, this player is the captain of the offense and throws passes and gives the ball to the running backs.

Running Backs

RBs are versatile players who run with ball, receive passes from Quarterbacks and all block players. Field goals are scored by kicking the ball through the opponent’s goalposts.

Corner-backs

It is the job of the CBs to ensure that the Quarterback is not successful in passing the ball.

Center

This is the player on the center of the offensive line who blocks and who delivers the snap to the Quarterback by putting the ball in play.

Now that you have hopefully understood the positions as depicted in the diagram, you should have a better understanding of the game. They try to stop any progress in the middle of the field.

Defensive Ends

DEs have the responsibility of stopping passes and ensuring that no offensive runs are made.. They generally play next to the players on the tackle.

It was only in the 1920s that American football as we know it today became popular with the establishment of the National Football League. It is not very difficult to understand and once you have attended a few games, you will definitely start enjoying it.

Tight Ends

While eligible to catch passes, the main job of a TE is to block players. There are two or three players that are in this position.

Safeties

Denoted by S in the diagram given here, the safeties are the last and final line of the defense team and are expected to possess the ability to hit hard.

We will now explain the positions with the help of the diagram given above. American football history though, can be traced back to the 1870s when a man named Walter Camp helped in the evolution of the game from the European rugby that was popular then. These are for field goals and extra points.

The goal line is the area which if an opponent successfully crosses with the ball, then a touchdown is scored.

The sidelines are the boundary lines running the length of the field.

The objective of the game, as many of you might know, is to score the maximum touchdowns or field goals. If you have always been fascinated by this game, then one of the easiest ways to understand the same is to refer to a diagram detailing football positions.

And remember, in the immortal words of “Fast” Eddie Felson, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”

Betting on football games; whether it’s through a local bookie, an offshore Internet site or a Nevada casino (still the only legal place in America to make football bets), most of us have done it or know of someone who has. He loses year after year, according to Dan Gordon, a top football handicapper and author of How to Beat the Sports Books (Cardoza Publishing 2005). “If you become an expert on a smaller conference like the WAC, you have a good chance to beat the house because sports book operators do not have the time or resources to follow this conference the way you can.

“The talking heads on TV know nothing about sports betting,” says Sevransky. Chasing losses is the fastest way to the poor house.”

And where does all that money go?

Although exact figures are impossible to calculate, according to Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered to be Las Vegas’ most influential bookmaker, Americans probably wager more than $50 billion a year on NFL and college football combined. The payout is just the same as far as he is concerned.

2. “For example, if you have a $1,000 bankroll for the season, you should generally bet no more than $50 a game.”

7. Otherwise, you’re better off doing your own research.”

“The biggest mistake that amateur bettors make is they increase their bets when they are losing,” Sevransky says.

10. Money Management – “This is without a doubt the most important aspect of betting on sports and possibly the most neglected,” says Morey “Doc” Moseman, a professional gambler and sports consultant with DocSports.com for nearly 40 years. The only locks that exist are those that need keys to open them.”

“The standard bet requires gamblers to lay $11 for every $10 they want to win with the extra $1 or 10 percent known as the juice,” Konik says.

Also, it’s probably a good idea to disregard advice from the myriad of ex-players and football experts you see on television each week. Slim underdogs regularly win outright.

“Most people with an understanding of football gambling bet between 3 percent and 5 percent of their bankroll, increasing when they win and reducing when they lose,” Vaccaro says. “The key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose.”

Even Hollywood is not immune – think Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

9. To be a successful sports bettor you need to operate with a clear mind.”

6. Giving 11 to 10 odds is almost always the cheapest price you can give.”

“The bookies fear and despise a tiny coterie of professional bettors known as ‘the sharps,'” Konik says. If North Texas is his best bet on a Saturday then that is his bet. Also, being “in action” can make a dull late-afternoon game (Buffalo vs. “Teams play inspired ball at home. “Over the course of several seasons, the percentage of bettors who turn a profit is minuscule.”

“A square is the average, unsophisticated gambler whose decision making is based on hunches, media manipulation, or spurious systems that cannot overcome the bookmaker’s inherent mathematical advantage,” Konik explains. He is not taken in by being involved in USC-Notre Dame just because it is the biggest watched game of the day.

8. “Common wisdom says that over the course of a long football season the average man or woman will pick approximately 50 percent winners. If you are going to go with a favorite, it is best to place your bet early in the week when the sharps are laying heavy money on the points. “When you’re in a good rhythm and winning, you want to increase your bets. If you like an underdog, it is best to get your bet in as late as possible, where there is heavy action from squares on favorites. Bet at the Right Time – “The sharp bettors tend to bet underdogs, and they tend to bet them early,” Moseman says.

Michael Konik, a sports writer and best-selling author of The Smart Money (Simon & Schuster 2006), explains why it is so hard for the recreational gambler to win at betting on football. Avoid Chasing Bets – “Don’t do it! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day,” cautions Moseman on the dangerous practice of trying to immediately win back your losses. And why not? We have unconditional love for the sport and betting $50 or $100 on a game adds an extra rush of adrenaline. Research Football Services – “Most sports services realize that most people who sign up with them are insecure,” Gordon warns. “In the NFL, a game will often be totally turned around by one or two plays, or even a single penalty. Locks Don’t Exist – “Anyone who has watched sports for about a month realizes that the difference between winning and losing, especially against the spread, can be infinitesimally small,” Gordon says. Shop For Numbers – “Another important aspect of betting on football is shopping for the best number,” Moseman explains.

So, how much are we gambling each football season?

Another difference between squares and sharps is how they approach betting on game day.

1.

5. “As for me, the best bet in football is betting the point spread or over/under totals on individual games. There is a wealth of information on the Internet; it is just up to you to find it and research it daily.”

4. These books change their numbers according to the betting patterns of their customers, so it is not entirely uncommon to find two or three point differences in the lines.”

Newspapers and popular sports sites routinely publish the lines or point spreads for games, and football insiders offer their picks to viewers each week on ESPN and other cable networks.

“A square or recreational player might have a vague plan, but after two Corona’s he will definitely run to the window and make a hasty decision on the USC-Notre Dame game because he wants to be involved in the party atmosphere,” Vaccaro says. Drinking and Gambling Don’t Mix – “There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling,” Moseman says. “In trying to bamboozle potential customers, many services make claims about having scouts all over the country that give them inside information and promise 70 or even 80 percent winners, as if the bookmakers were the biggest suckers in the world. “The sharps are usually members of a betting syndicate privy to the most up-to-date information on injuries, weather, game plans, and, most important, the real power of the teams involved. So underdogs tend to be slightly undervalued – except by the sharps.”

Certainly not back into the pockets of the average bettor.

“A sharp or smart has a plan of what he wants to do,” says Vaccaro, the director of sports operations and public relations at Lucky’s Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas. Oakland comes to mind) seem like the Super Bowl. “Thus, the bookies love and cherish the squares.”

But that doesn’t mean you have to bet like a “square” and throw away your hard-earned money.

But even though the math says it’s virtually impossible to win on a consistent basis, Americans continue to bet on football. Not all games work according to this formula, but it is usually a good rule of thumb.”

“In an average season, fewer than one bettor in twelve turns a profit,” Gordon says. “Because alcohol clouds your judgment and usually helps you to make rash decisions you usually wouldn’t otherwise make. Avoid Exotic Bets – “For very skilled handicappers, with a proven track record, there can, at least in theory, be value in betting parlays,” says Gordon on the type of bet that combines two or more individual wagers. “He is not jaded by teams and does not bet with his heart.

3. “There will be more discrepancy in the numbers at different sports books. Big underdogs often find ways to cover the spread and they rarely give up toward the end of a game in front of the home crowd.”

However, Konik adds that there are some bettors who actually know how to beat the bookies. The NFL, for example, will have very similar numbers at most of the betting shops you visit.

While these tips don’t guarantee you’re going to win, hopefully they can make you a little less square and a little more sharp in your picks this season. “Squares usually bet later in the week and they tend to pick the favorites.

So, is it possible for the average square to become a little sharper in making football bets this season? According to professionals like Vacarro, Konik and Gordon, amateur bettors have the best chance to win if they demonstrate a little patience and follow the 10 basic tips below. The only touts bettors should consider are the ones who talk about the long haul and realistic winning percentages, which are in the upper 50 percent to lower 60 percent range.”

Moseman agrees and especially likes home underdogs. On college you will be able to find different lines at different sports books. They use powerful computers that can process millions of bits of data and produce a more accurate point-spread line than the bookmakers.”

Ted Sevransky, a well-known Las Vegas gambler and sports consultant with Sportsmemo.com, agrees.. There are almost an infinite number of scenarios that can happen in a single football game. “If you listen to their advice, you are sure to lose. Focus on Conferences – “The best way to win money betting football is to develop a niche and follow it closely,” Moseman advises. But, when you’re struggling, that’s when you want to reduce your bet size until you get out of your slump. Thanks to the juice, the only one who profits in this scenario is the bookmaker. Consider Underdogs – “In the long-run, it’s easier to win betting on the underdog,” Konik says. “Most people prefer to bet on the ‘better’ team, the one that will probably win the game. In fact, sports bettors must pick 52.4 percent winners just to break even.”

So, how much should you bet a game?

“There is probably no better bet in sports than playing an underdog at home,” Moseman says. If you want advice about sports betting, find someone who has a successful track record
