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.

It is nice to see someone ask for the actual money owed to them + interest and court costs. Usually it is a liberal asking for nothing owed to them + millions. Liberals always want something for nothing. They think people owe them something because they merely exist....

All he needs to do is sleep with Tiger Woods and he'll get paid off and be able to pay his debt. Or get a picture of Tiger and he'll have some money left over.....

lesson: never loan (and/or) give anyone money. they will never pay it back. you'll lose your relationship, plus spend hundreds of hours in worry and court time trying to get it back. DON'T DO IT!

If a squirrel farted, they'd figure out a way to turn it into a political cheap shot. Case closed.

Ball`s has no Ball`s    

I just bought a new car stereo... When you shout out "Soul", it plays soul music. When you shout out "Rock", it plays rock music. Some kids ran in front of my car, and I shouted "f`n kids!", and it played Michael Jackson.
