Giamatti Scores Rose Ruling

BASEBALL Commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti has vowed to fight an Ohio state judge's decision to delay a hearing into gambling allegations against Cincinnati Reds manager Pete Rose. Judge Norbert Nadel on Sunday delayed for two weeks yesterday's scheduled hearing, saying the results, which could mean a lifetime ban from baseball for the game's all-time hits leader, had become ``a foregone conclusion.''

The ruling sets the judge on a collision course with federal court decisions that have upheld the commissioner's broad authority to act when the integrity of the game is at stake. Team owners Charles O. Finley and Ted Turner lost challenges of the authority of then-Commissioner Bowie Kuhn in the 1970s.
