John Dowd has donated his documentation from his famous investigation to Cooperstown. Funny timing eh? I've tried to reach Mr. Dowd for a long time and have never had success, but I see this as just another step in Pete Rose's return. Dowd has stood as a lone voice of reason, but he's also a smart lawyer - faced with a "case" that he knows he'll lose, he's getting the best deal he can. The material will hopefully stand as a reminder of malfeasance and betrayal against the copper plaque in the Hall. One can only hope that there is a note on the plaque as well, but I'm not holding my breath.
