Former Mets player sues former Mets Player

Now this is an interesting story. I have no idea what is going on or how this is going to get settled but here is the story from the NY Post.

Former New York Mets outfielder Endy Chavez claims he was duped into shelling out $1.2 million to a fellow Major Leaguer — and has struck out trying to get his money back.

Infielder and fellow Venezuelan Melvin Mora borrowed the dough in installments from Chavez beginning in 2019, according to legal papers filed Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court.Chavez, 46, who played for the Amazins’ from 2006 to 2008, is suing Mora for fraud and breach of contract, alleging he “has failed and continues to fail to pay” back the debt.

Chavez hit the former professional infielder where it hurts, serving him a summons with notice — the legal precursor to a lawsuit — at a Hall of Fame baseball game in Cooperstown, Blit said.Mora has repaid just $50,000, Blit contends.

“He betrayed Endy’s trust,” Blit said. “We don’t think it was a legit company. We just think he stole his money.”
