Must be National Lawsuit Day in MLB.
Former Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols is suing former Cardinals star Jack Clark over comments Clark made accusing Pujols of using steroids.
The suit was filed Friday in St. Louis County.
On Aug. 2, Clark said during his The King and the Ripper radio program on WGNU 920 AM that he knew “for a fact” that Pujols was “a juicer,” using steroids and performance enhancing drugs.
Clark’s statements are lies that have damaged Pujols’ reputation, causing him personal humiliation, mental anguish and anxiety, the suit says.
Pujols’ suit says his character and reputation are “impeccable and beyond reproach” and calls Clark a “struggling radio talk show host.”
