What St. Louis Cardinals player is currently tied up in a lawsuit? The answer is Yadier Molina. Sued by Steiner Sports Marketing, the claim alleges the baseball player was a no-show at an autograph-signing event that he was paid to attend. Get the rest of the scoop here.
The only thing that may of hurt Yadier Molina worse then the foul ball that ricocheted off of his knee a couple of weeks ago, is the lawsuit that was recently filed against him. Although it won’t inflict any physical damage to the all-star catcher, it may end up bruising his pocket book terribly.
The plaintiffs claim that they paid Molina nearly $91,000 to appear at autograph events that he failed to show up for. The damages, if awarded in total, would exceed $175,000.
I suppose we’ll have to wait for the court’s decision to find out whether or not the allegations against Molina are true. But I do have to say that it deeply saddens me to see the MLB become so tainted over the past few years. Baseball is the sport that earned the title of “Americas Past Time,” and at one point I feel that it was deserving of the prestige’s name. In recent years though, between the scandals, steroids, lawsuits, etc, I feel Major League Baseball is losing the magic it once had. Am I the only one who feels this way?
