Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of materials on Major League Baseball's 1989 investigation into the gambling activities of Cincinnati Reds manager Pete Rose, which resulted in Rose's placement on Baseball's "permanently ineligible list."

Included are copies of MLB investigator Thomas Dowd's report on Rose's activities, with its many attendant volumes of exhibits; transcripts of interviews conducted by Dowd in his investigation; legal documents from Peter E. Rose v. A. Bartlett Giamatti, et al and United States v. Thomas P. Gioiosa, and copies of newspaper articles tracking the case from March to September, 1989.
