Alomar Ex Says He Has AIDS
In 1996, after Alomar spat in umpire John Hirschbeck's face while with the Orioles, umpire Al Clark remarked, "If I were John, I'd insist that Robbie Alomar take an AIDS test." Rumors that Alomar is gay have circulated for years; ball talk listed him among "Baseball's Top 10 Gay Icons" in 2004. "Alomar had a wee mustache in his youth," they wrote, "and later sported full-on beards, most notably tennis star Mary Pierce."
Dali says that Alomar repeatedly refused to take an HIV test, and his lawyer "would not say whether Alomar is HIV-positive," the News reports.
