MLB Pitcher Sues His Catcher

12/24/2009 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park is suing the man who caught his balls -- claiming his former catcher stiffed him on a $460,000 loan.



Park -- who's currently playing for the Philadelphia Phillies -- claims he loaned the cash to former Dodgers catcher Chad Kreuter back in 2005.

In the lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Park says he made the loan because Kreuter "had been a highly compensated Major League Baseball player" and he assured Park that he "would have no difficulty paying [Park] back."

According to the suit, Kreuter signed a promissory note for the debt, but only made one payment for $290,000.

Now Park wants the remaining $170,000 plus interest and fees for the loan -- totaling $226,358.76.

That's hardball.

Never loan money, that's what a bank is for. If they need money in the first place...how are they going to pay you back?

I saw Chan Ho Park years ago when he was first with the Padres. I showed up early to a game he was starting in. I stood politely by to get an autograph. Mr. Park was too occupied to give anyone an autograph that day.

Actually I think it's Chan Ho's lawyer who just wants a cut of the commiss. on this lawsuit.

Times must be rough even for lawyers this year.

I come here for my daily Cheetah news and this is all the sports news you have?!? Damn it! I want my daily Cheetah updates!

Cheetah must be so happy, the news is quieting down.

Don't let that CHEETAH GET AWAY WITH THIS! Dig up something. You are giving him what he wants....diverted attention and YOU, TMZ, of all people are going to let him get away with this?

More Tiger news TMZ!

The only way I want to hear about a pitcher and a catcher is if Elin is using a golf club like a bat and Tiger catches it upside the head. Better yet, the BALLS!

Why was he stupid enough to loan money to a backup catcher? He deserves to lose it.
