Former Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals, and New York Yankees OF/DH Danny Tartabull has resurfaced on a “most wanted” Child Support list. According to Los Angeles County, Tartabull is $276K in arrears for back child support. That’s just slighly over $1K per career home run he hit (262)!
According to FoxSports.com, Tartabull’s sons to which he is somewhat negligent in supporting are of some athletic reputation, with his oldest Zack being recruited as a college WR several years ago, and his younger son Quentin (no relation to the jail) pledged to play some DB for California-Berkeley in 2014.
Tartabull led the American League in slugging in 1991, his only All-Star season. He was also the proud recipient of one Hall of Fame vote in 2003, his first, and only year of eligibility.
The slugger was also known for a fun guest appearance on the hit TV series “Seinfeld” as part of a George story line when he was the assistant to the traveling secretary for the Yankees.
Danny Tartabull is facing 180-days in jail and a very angry judge if he is tracked down!
