Craig Greenham and the Pete Rose betting scandal

Craig Greenham talks to Conor Heffernan about his recent article on the Pete Rose betting scandal and how it was discussed by the American press. Dr. Greenham is Assistant Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor. Sport was not only a childhood passion but also a professional calling for Dr. Greenham. Before joining the academic ranks, he was a sports journalist. While covering sports, Dr. Greenham’s interest in the history that shaped and provided meaning to current events as well as the underlying sociocultural layers of athletics prompted a shift in career toward deeper scholarly inquiry. The primary focus of Dr. Greenham’s research is North American professional sports – particularly baseball, hockey and Canadian football.
