Roberto Alomar Accused: Wife Claims He Has HIV, and They Had Unprotected Sex

NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Roberto Alomar's wife is alleging in divorce papers that the former baseball star had unprotected sex with her despite knowing he was HIV-positive.

Maria Del Pilar Rivera Alomar claims Alomar "knew prior to his first sexual contact with (her) that he was HIV-positive," the New York Post reported Thursday.

It's not the first such claim against the ex-All Star.

A former girlfriend, Ilya Dall, filed a lawsuit last year accusing Alomar of having unprotected sex with her over the course of four years. Dall sought $15 million from Alomar, and the case was eventually settled last May.

In that case, his current wife, Rivera - who was then his girlfriend -- defended him, calling Dall's lawsuit "a vile lie."

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.
