Albert Pujols sued former Cardinal Jack Clark, seeking unspecified damages, for comments Clark made on the radio accusing the three-time NL MVP of using steroids.
The suit states that Pujols' "character and reputation are impeccable and beyond reproach" while Clark is merely "a struggling radio talk show host" who wanted to boost ratings. Clark, who played for the Cardinals from 1985-87, said on August 2 that he knew "for a fact" that Pujols used steroids and PEDs. Clark and co-host Kevin Slaten were fired a week later. "Cutting Clark off at the microphone will not undo the harm to Pujols' reputation caused by Clark," the suit stated.
