A complaint filed by Ilya Dall, who lived with Alomar for three years, claims that she saw his health go downhill steadily. This report states that Alomar had been suffering with a cough, shingles and other symptoms which prompted him to finally have the HIV test. The report claims that Alomar and the plaintiff, Ms. Dall, received the news of the positive HIV test on or about February 6th of 2006.
The report goes on to say that Alomar went to see a disease specialist who gave him a spinal tap, which showed that he has “full-blown AIDS.” Ms. Dall is claiming that Alomar wanted to, and convinced her to have unprotected sex, even after knowing that he was infected with AIDS. From The Sporting News:
The court papers outline the couple’s relationship, starting in 2002, the Daily News reports. A month after they began dating, Alomar had unprotected sex with Dall and assured her he was disease-free, the suit alleges.
In 2004, Dall says she noticed cold sores in his mouth. In 2005, after a physical exam ordered by the Tampa Bay Rays, he was diagnosed with thrombocytopenia purpura, a blood disorder sometimes linked to HIV, she claims.
In April 2005, Alomar told Dall he was suffering from erectile dysfunction and confided “he was raped by two Mexican men after playing a ballgame in New Mexico or a Southwestern state when he was 17,” the suit, which was filed January 30 in Queens Supreme Court, says. Alomar had it transferred to Brooklyn Federal Court on Tuesday.
Alomar is the son of former player and current coach for the New York Mets, Sandy Alomar sr., he is also the younger brother of major league catcher Sandy Alomar jr. Sandy Alomar sr. says it is the first that he has heard of his son being sick, he says that if it were true he would know about it. Alomar’s lawyer says that he is healthy and they will do their talking in court, when the take on this frivolous lawsuit.
Alomar was involved in an infamous altercation with umpire John Hirschbeck, in which Alomar spat in his face during an arguement on the field. The incident made huge headlines at the time, but both men publically apologized to one another and are good friends today. SEE VIDEO BELOW.
