In an interview to be broadcast 08 January 2004 by ABC News, Rose ends 15 years of denials by admitting he bet on baseball games in 1987 and 1988. His admission, considered a first step towards his reinstatement in baseball and a possible entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame, is expected to feature heavily in his new autobiography, My Prison Without Bars, which will be released 08 January 2004.
