Jack Clark retracts comments about Pujols


ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Radio host and former Cardinals player Jack Clark has
retracted comments he made implying that Albert Pujols used performance
enhancing drugs.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Clark, who played for the Cardinals
from 1985-87, issued a public retraction Monday night for his comments made
about Pujols, a nine-time All-Star who played for the Cardinals from 2001-11
before signing a 10-year, $240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels.

Pujols, who has vehemently denied using performance-enhancing drugs, sued Clark
for defamation after Clark said on his show in August that Pujols used banned
performance-enhancing drug.

Clark apologized in a statement and said he has ``no knowledge whatsoever''
that Pujols ever used used illegal or banned drugs.

Pujols says he's accepted Clark's retraction and apology and would resolve the
lawsuit.
