Pete Rose -- He was banned from Major League Baseball in 1989 amid accusations that he gambled on baseball games while playing for and managing the Cincinnati Reds, including claims that he bet on his own team. Rose denied betting on baseball then and continued to deny it for 14 years. In 2004, he admitted in his autobiography, "My Prison Without Bars," that he did bet on baseball while managing the Cincinnati Reds. He met with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred in September 2015 to seek reinstatement, but was ultimately denied.
