Pete Rose is now 73 years old and has been banned from baseball since August 1989. He applied for reinstatement in 1997, and met with commissioner Bud Selig as recently as November 2002 to discuss his return to the game he loves. Rose sat down with CBS Sunday Morning's Lee Cowan about being out of baseball for the last 25 years, and still believes he will eventually end up in Cooperstown.

Rose also told CBS Sunday Morning that he made a big mistake when he bet on baseball. When asked why he did it, the Hit King was at a loss of words.

The rest of the Rose interview will air on CBS Sunday Morning.
