Trevor Bauer is no longer playing fair.
The suspended Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher and his lawyers are asking a judge to dismiss counterclaims brought by a woman he said falsely accused him of sexual assault, saying her claims have already been found to be false.
They included with the filing a video from Hill’s cellphone that shows her in bed next to a sleeping Bauer. She could be seen smiling from ear to ear as she stares into the camera.
Bauer re-tweeted a tweet that contained the video, writing, “This was taken hours after I supposedly brutally assaulted this woman, when she claims she was terrified and desperate to get out of my house and in tremendous pain.”
Bauer’s lawyers say Hill “improperly withheld” the video when it could have helped exonerate Bauer back in 2021.
Bauer was playing for the Dodgers when Hill obtained a temporary restraining order against him based on allegations that he sexually assaulted her. She released photos of herself with two black eyes and bruising on her face that she connects back to Bauer.
Bauer filed a defamation lawsuit against Hill when no criminal charges were filed against him, announcing that his accuser was attempting to “extract millions of dollars” by creating a media frenzy with her false claim.
Bauer’s defamation suit read, “[The accuser] fabricated allegations of sexual assault against Plaintiff Trevor Bauer, pursued bogus criminal and civil actions against him, made false and malicious statements about him, and generated a media blitz based on her lies.”
He was never charged with a crime, but Major League Baseball suspended him for two seasons without pay in April.
Bauer last pitched in an MLB game on June 29, 2021.
