NY Yankees Sued for Fraud Over Major League Baseball Steroid Scandal

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Major League Baseball steroid scandal has led one  New York Yankees fan to sue the baseball team for fraud.  Matthew Mitchell, a 30-year-old Brooklyn resident wants to be reimbursed for the money he spent on five Yankee game tickets because the outcomes of the ballgames where likely influenced by steroids.  Several high-profile New York Yankees baseball players – including pitchers Andy Petitte and Roger Clemens – have been implicated in the Major League Baseball steroid scandal.

Mitchell’s claim was filed last week in Brooklyn Small Claims Court under the category “failure to provide goods paid for.” So far, the Yankees have refused to comment, but a hearing on Mitchell’s Major League Baseball steroid scandal lawsuit is scheduled for a hearing on February 20.  For his part, Mitchell has vowed never to attend another Yankees game.

On December 13, 2007 the results of an investigation into the use of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball was released by former US Senator George Mitchell.  The publication of the Mitchell Report marked one of the darkest days in the history of Major League Baseball.  Not only were steroids and other banned substances used regularly by some of the greatest heroes of the game, but Sen. Mitchell found that, by turning a blind eye to the steroid scandal, both the Major League Baseball Players Association and Major League Baseball itself where complicit in the steroid scandal.   According to the Mitchell Report, the use of steroids in Major League Baseball was so widespread that it undermined the integrity of the game.

Mitchell (no relation to the Senator), a  paralegal, claims the Major League Baseball steroid scandal amounts to consumer fraud.   Now, he is suing the New York Yankees to recover the costs of tickets to five games he attended between 2002 and 2007.   They include Game 2 of the 2003 World Series, in which pitcher Andy Pettitte led the Yankees to a win, as well as another played on June 8, 2002, where Mitchell watched San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds hit one of the longest home runs he had ever seen in Yankee Stadium.

Because the outcomes of those games could have been influenced by the use of steroids and other banned substances, Mitchell believes the costs of tickets should be refunded by the Yankees.  “You told me I was seeing a baseball game with real baseball players, when, in fact, there were players that were artificially enhanced,” Mitchell said, according to a report on ABC  Mitchell told ABC that he is only asking for the cost of the tickets, because he wants his lawsuit to focus on the ethical concerns highlighted by the Major League Baseball steroid scandal.
