"Lima Time" is Back in the News

NFL All-Pro cornerback Antonio Cromartie might want to take notice.

According to Hispanically Speaking News (yes, that's a real thing)...one of Jose Lima's jump-offs is looking for more money out of the late big league pitcher.

Dominican model Dalla Leclerc gets $625 from Lima’s American Social Security benefits, but desires more money for her and her daughter Kammiell. Leclerc gave birth to Kammiell when Lima was married to his second wife, Melissa Lima. 

Leclerc is now suing Major League Baseball Players Association for benefits that are only reserved for legal heirs of players. The union refuses to acknowledge Kammiell as Lima’s child since the couple never married.

Lima passed away in 2010 after suffering a heart attack.  He has six children with six different women.
