HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A jury has ruled against former Detroit Tigers pitcher Denny McLain in a breach-of-contract lawsuit.

The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports (https://bit.ly/1I8wgcY ) a Livingston County District Court jury found Wednesday in favor of Joe Dobson, who sued McLain for $1,910.

Dobson initially filed his lawsuit in Livingston County’s small-claims court, saying McLain owed him for unpaid wages for a sales job from October to November. McLain countersued seeking more than $25,000, which moved the case to Circuit Court.

McLain said Dobson, who assisted McLain with marketing and sales at trade shows, interfered with McLain’s business relationships.

Judge Theresa Brennan dismissed McLain’s counterclaims.

McLain won the 1968 American League Most Valuable Player and Cy Young awards after winning 31 games and leading Detroit to the World Series.
