Pujols suing clark over steroids accusations

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is suing former St. Louis Cardinals slugger Jack Clark for accusing him of using steroids.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Pujols filed the lawsuit Friday in St. Louis County seeking unspecified damages and asking Clark to admit that his statements were false.

Clark said during his radio show on WGNU on Aug. 2 that he knew "for a fact" that Pujols used steroids. Clark and co-host Kevin Slaten were fired the next day.

Pujols claims that Clark's comments are lies that have damaged his reputation, causing him humiliation, mental anguish and anxiety.

Clark's attorney, Chet Pleban, said he welcomes a jury trial.

Pujols starred for the Cardinals for 11 seasons and has spent the past two seasons with the Angels.
