Former White Sox Alomar Sued

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Feb 11, 2009 5:40PM

Former star second baseman (and former White Sox player) Roberto Alomar is in hot water: an ex-girlfriend is suing him for $15 million, alleging he forced to her to have unprotected sex though he knew or suspected he was HIV positive. The ex, Ilya Dall, tested negative for the disease but is suing for "punitive damages and emotional distress." Alomar spent part of the 2003 and 2004 seasons playing for the White Sox but had very little impact. Our sister site Gothamist has more details on this disturbing story.
