CINCINNATI | Pete Rose says he finally gets what former baseball Commissioner Bart Giamatti meant when he talked about reconfiguring his life.

So, he’s ‘fessing up.

Baseball’s hits king told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that it’s taken him a long time to realize that Giamatti wanted him to “‘fess up and take responsibility” for his actions after he got a lifetime ban for gambling. He’s doing that now. Rose has been reaching out to former Big Red Machine teammates and apologizing.

Rose says he’s “perfectly happy inside right now.”

The Reds celebrated the 25th anniversary of his record-setting hit No. 4,192 on September 11. A documentary on his career will be released later this week.
