Zobrist 'Too Devastated To Play Baseball' After Wife's Alleged Affair

The nasty public divorce of a former Kansas City Royals start is getting worse.

His soon-to-be ex-wife wants FOUR MILLION BUCKS MORE in a divorce settlement and seyz the start stopped working intentionally.

Here's the response . . .

Ben Zobrist’s attorney Helen S. Rogers called the claim “utterly absurd,” and argues that the former World Series MVP was too devastated to play baseball after finding out that his wife had been having an affair with the family pastor, Byron Yawn, and took a leave of absence from the team.

“Rather than accepting blame for having torn her husband’s heart out by having an affair with their pastor, she expected him to be able to totally focus in an elite athletic job that required (100%) of his physical and mental energy,” Rogers wrote in the memorandum. “It is Mrs. Zobrist, by having the extramarital affair and confessing same to her husband, and not disclosing the true extent of her affair, that caused him such extreme mental distress and difficulty that resulted in an inability to finish his long and very successful career in the way that he had hoped for and planned for.”
