Dowd Report

The Dowd Report is the document describing the transgressions of baseball player Pete Rose in betting on baseball, which precipitated his agreement to a lifetime suspension from the sport in the United States. The 225-page report was prepared by Special Counsel to the Commissioner, John M. Dowd, Esq. and was submitted to Commissioner Bart Giamatti in May 1989. The report was accompanied by seven volumes of exhibits, which included bank & telephone records, alleged betting records, expert reports, and transcripts of interviews with Rose and other witnesses.

The most controversial conclusion of the report, that Rose had bet on baseball games while managing the Cincinnati Reds, was confirmed fifteen years later by Rose himself through his autobiography My Prison Without Bars.
