Joe Garagiola and Stan Musial, former teammates on the St. Louis Cardinals, are on opposite sides of a suit filed Monday in federal court.
Garagiola and his wife Audrie filed suit concerning a bowling alley the former teammates own jointly in south St. Louis. Garagiola and Musial played together in the 1940s.
The suit also names as defendants Musial's son Richard, Theresa and John M. Garagnani, and five corporations. The corporations include Stan Musial & Biggie's Inc., owner of the popular Stan Musial & Biggie's restaurant in St. Louis.
The Garagiolas own a one-third interest in the bowling alley, Red Bird Lanes, and two holding companies.
The suit alleges Richard Musial and John Garagnani received payments from the bowling alley without the knowledge of the Garagiolas . . .
Bob Brodhead, the athletic director at Louisiana State University, will plead guilty Friday in federal court to conspiring to intercept and divulge a radio communication, his attorney said.
The plea, worked out in a deal with federal prosecutors, stems from an investigation of electronic bugging devices found in Brodhead's office last October.
James Boren, one of Brodhead's attorneys, said the athletic director's plea will be to a "petty offense," punishable by a maximum sentence of six months in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Last October Brodhead told reporters the bugging was intended to be part of an elaborate plan to catch people who were leaking athletic department information to news reporters.
