MLB | Rose Jr. Pleads Guilty to Drug Charge

The Associated Press reports Pete Rose Jr. pleaded guilty to charges that he distributed GBL, a drug sometimes sold as a steroid alternative, to his minor league teammates. The indictment said Rose admitted he received GBL from a person in Tennessee while a member of the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. He also said he supplied half the players on that team with the drug. Rose said his teammates would take GBL to "wind down" after games, DEA spokesman Rusty Payne said. Under a deal with prosecutors, Rose could be sentenced to 21 to 27 months in federal prison and fined up to $1 million. His sentencing hearing is set for Feb. 20.
