In what is surely a distant second in sexiness among today's baseball lawsuits, Albert Pujols is suing former radio host Jack Clark for claiming he knew "for a fact" that Pujols used steroids in St. Louis.
Clark said on the air in August that he had been told by former trainer Chris Mihlfeld that he had injected Pujols with PEDs; Mihlfeld quickly denied ever saying that. Clark was promptly fired by WGNU, and Pujols threatened to sue. It was no empty threat.
Pujols filed his defamation lawsuit today in St. Louis County. Calling Clark a "former major league baseball player turned struggling radio talk show host," it claims Clark "targeted Pujols and published and disseminated malicious, reckless and outrageous falsehoods about him."
The full suit is below, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
