Corked bats are an honorable tradition in baseball; Rose is far from the only player to use them (e.g., Amos Otis -- who generally has a reputation of a good guy -- said he used corked bats his entire career) and there is no consensus as to whether they actually help a batter. It's no worse than throwing a spitball or a scuffed baseball -- neither of which kept pitchers out of the Hall of Fame.
