Roberto Alomar settles sex lawsuit

May 5, 2009 11:32:39 AM PDT
Roberto Alomar and his ex-girlfriend have apparently settled her explosive lawsuit claiming he made her have unprotected sex even though he had AIDS. Ilya Dall had sued Alomar in Brooklyn federal court in February for $15 million. Her allegations that he demanded sex without a condom despite showing signs of HIV were never corroborated.

An entry in the court file Tuesday says a settlement had been reached. Neither side commented.

Alomar spent 17 years in Major League Baseball as one of the game's great second basemen. He has said that he is "in very good health."

Alomar was one of baseball's best players in the 1990s, making 12 straight All-Star appearances and winning two World Series with the Toronto Blue Jays.

A career .300 hitter with 10 Gold Gloves, Alomar broke in with the San Diego Padres in 1988 and also played for the Baltimore Orioles, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago White Sox. He was out of baseball by 2005.

One of the most memorable moments of Alomar's career came in 1996, when he became enraged after a third strike and spit on umpire John Hirschbeck. He drew a five-game suspension that was later overturned.
