Roberto Alomar’s wife obtains domestic injunction
Question of the Day
Maria Del Pilar Alomar, 33, said in a complaint filed Monday that the couple got into an argument at their Hillsborough County home on Sunday. Deputies responded, and the wife told them that she had to push Alomar away when he got several inches from her. No arrests were made.
The complaint also described an incident in June, where Alomar, 42, reportedly yelled at his wife and pushed her. In April, he threatened her with a knife, according to the complaint.
A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 13.
According to the injunction, Alomar must stay 500 feet from his wife, and he’s prohibited from contacting her.
Boggs said he wasn’t sure who was staying at the couple’s Tampa-area home or if either person would be filing for divorce.
The 12-time All-Star played major league baseball from 1988 to 2004. He played for a total of seven teams, including the San Diego Padres (1988-1990), Toronto Blue Jays (1991-1995), Baltimore Orioles (1996-1998), Cleveland Indians (1999-2001), New York Mets (2002-2003), Chicago White Sox (2003, 2004) and Arizona Diamondbacks (2004).
Alomar _ a switch-hitter who threw right-handed _ holds a record 10 gold gloves at second base and four Sliver Slugger awards. He had a career batting average of .300, with 2,724 hits, 210 home runs, 1,134 RBIs and 474 stolen bases.
Alomar made headlines in late 1996 when, after being called out on strikes, he spit in the face of umpire John Hirschbeck.
