|Sammy Sosa Facing Lawsuit in Dominican Court
|SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) -- Sammy Sosa is being sued for $203,000 by a businessman who claims the former Major Leaguer owes him for commission on a house sale, among other things.
Carim Abu Nabaa alleges that Sosa has not paid him a commission of $150,000 on a house sale, $43,000 for a luxury watch, and $10,000 for getting Reggaeton singer Don Omar to perform at Sosa's 41st birthday party.
In legal documents obtained by The Associated Press, Sosa has been ordered to appear in a Dominican court on December 2.
Sosa played for the Chicago Cubs from 1992-2004 and became one of the league's most feared hitters. He also played for the Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles.
