12 time Major League All Star Roberto Alomar has faced two HIV non-disclosure lawsuits since he was diagnosed with full blown AIDS back in 2006. The diagnosis came the year after Alomar retired from baseball because his heath was in decline.

The first lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend Ilya Dall claimed that Alomar had refused to be tested for HIV in 2005 despite doctor recommendations that he do so. Dall also claimed that Alomar knew he was at high risk for contracting HIV because he had been raped in 1985 by two Mexican men at the age of 17.

The second lawsuit was filed by his wife Maria Del Pilar "Maripily" Rivera Alomar who says that he lied to her about testing negative for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) before having sex with the in 2009. Rivera Alomar is a famous model and socialite from Puerto Rico.

The first lawsuit was dropped voluntarily by Dall and the second one filed in October of 2010 remains open.

Roberto Alomar is a twelve time all-star who narrowly missed being voted into the Hall of Fame in 2010. He won 10 Gold Gloves as a second baseman, had 9 seasons with a batting average of .300, stole 30 based or more in 8 seasons, and won four Silver Slugger Awards. He was such good player that McCain Fruit Punch made his their spokesman for the "Catch the Taste" ad campaign.

Despite his achievements that included multiple World Series Championships the most memorable moment of his career is an incident from 1996 in which he spit in the face of an umpire during a heated argument. As a result he was suspended for 5 games at the start of the 1997 season despite protest from the Umpires Union that he be given a 10 game suspension.

This report has been updated to include a clip of Alomar speaking at a Hall of Fame induction ceremony because the footage of him spitting on an umpire in 1996 that we originally included with this report is no longer online.
