A potentially nasty legal battle between Angels slugger Albert Pujols and former St. Louis Cardinals slugger Jack Clark was avoided Monday when Clark issued a public apology for last summer's comments accusing Pujols of using performance-enhancing drugs. Pujols, in turn, said he would drop the defamation lawsuit he filed in St. Louis County in October that accused Clark of disseminating “malicious, reckless and outrageous falsehoods” about him in an attempt to “generate attention and ratings” for Clark's new sports-radio talk show.

The St. Louis Cardinals today acquired power-hitting outfielder Jack Clark from San Francisco in a deal that sends four players to the Giants, a Cardinals spokesman said. In exchange for Clark, San Francisco gets pitcher Dave LaPoint, first basemen David Green and Gary Rajsich, and shortstop Jose Gonzalez. Clark, 29, has hit 20 or more home runs in five of the last seven seasons. He was sidelined much of last season with a knee injury.

Albert Pujols wasn't bluffing. The Angels slugger followed through on his threat of legal action, filing a defamation lawsuit Friday in Missouri against Jack Clark for his accusation that Pujols used performance-enhancing drugs. In the suit, Pujols accuses Clark of disseminating "malicious, reckless and outrageous falsehoods" about him, and says Clark's accusations were "an outrageous ploy to generate attention and ratings" for Clark's new sports-radio talk show. Clark, whose show began airing on WGNU in St. Louis early in August, based his accusation on conversations he said he had with Chris Mihlfeld, Pujols' former personal trainer.

First baseman Jack Clark, the man they call the Ripper, decided over the weekend he will leave the San Diego Padre organization in style, unleashing a vicious verbal attack on Manager Greg Riddoch. Clark accuses Riddoch of being responsible for many of the organization's 31 firings over the past 10 weeks, of back-stabbing everyone in his path, of being an incompetent manager and an evil person. He also promises revenge.

Jack Clark, who accused Angels first baseman Albert Pujols of using performance-enhancing drugs early in his career during a radio show Friday, and cohost Kevin Slaten have had their show pulled from the air, according to reports Saturday morning in St. Louis. Clark, who hit 340 home runs during an 18-year big league career, began working at WGNU-AM in St. Louis just last week. He based his accusation on conversations he said he had with Chris Mihlfeld, Pujols' former personal trainer, who worked with the Dodgers when Clark was the team's hitting coach in 2000.

Albert Pujols declined Friday to confirm whether he still planned to pursue legal remedies against Jack Clark, who alleged on a St. Louis radio show that Pujols had used steroids. "I don't want to talk about that," Pujols said. Pujols said he stood by the statement he issued last Friday, in which he denied using performance-enhancing substances and said he was "in the process of taking legal action" against Clark and the radio station that aired his show. Clark since has been fired by InsideSTL Enterprises, the company that employed him and bought the air time from the station.

CLEVELAND - A former personal trainer for Angels slugger Albert Pujols strongly denied accusations by former major leaguer Jack Clark that Pujols used performance-enhancing drugs during his early days with the St. Louis Cardinals. “I haven't even talked to Jack Clark in close to 10 years - his statements are simply not true,” Chris Mihlfeld, who worked with the Dodgers in 2000, when Clark was the team's hitting coach, wrote in an email to The Times. “I have known Albert Pujols since he was 18 years old, and he would never use illegal drugs in any way. I would bet my life on it and probably drop dead on the spot if I found out he has. As before, once again, both Albert and myself have been accused of doing something we didn't do,” Mihlfield wrote.

Tom Niedenfuer, former Dodgers reliever, made thousands of pitches over a 10-season major league career. Baseball fans probably remember only two. Ozzie Smith lined the first over the Busch Stadium wall 25 years ago this week, his improbable walk-off home run giving the St. Louis Cardinals a Game 5 victory over the Dodgers in the 1985 National League Championship Series. Two days later, Jack Clark crushed a Niedenfuer offering into the left-field pavilion at Dodger Stadium.

San Diego Padre first baseman Jack Clark, a new-look free agent, is expected to agree to a three-year contract with the Boston Red Sox today that would be worth about $9.3 million. Tom Reich, Clark's agent, and Lou Gorman, Red Sox general manager, have another meeting scheduled this afternoon in Boston. Clark said he believes an accord will be reached. "He (Reich) didn't say that we have a done deal," Clark said from his Danville, Calif.

For Jack Clark's bat, it's been another silent spring. One day 'til summer and in 46 games, the Boston Red Sox's alleged cleanup hitter had only three home runs, 22 RBI and a .212 batting average, the lowest average of the regulars. If a slugger is going to stink, 'tis better not to stink before the home folks. Clark hasn't hit one home run at Fenway this season, and, as is his custom, he leads the team in strikeouts (52) and dirty looks.

When Jack Clark signed a three-year, $9-million contract to play baseball with the Boston Red Sox, he decided he needed a hobby--one he could turn into his livelihood when his baseball days were over. He decided he wanted to own a top-fuel drag racing team and campaign a 4,000-horsepower machine that can cover a quarter-mile in less than five seconds at speeds nearing 300 m.p.h.
